Hats off to these parents for their endless creativity! 

Throughout the holiday season, parents of little ones scramble to find creative ways to move the Elf on the Shelf every single night till Christmas—the idea being that the Elf (who is all-seeing and reports back to Santa regarding kiddos' bad or good behavior) is found each morning in a different pose. But, just HOW creative do the parents get? Are you out of ideas yourself? There's no need to reinvent the wheel. Check out this list of 15hilarious "Elf on the Shelf" poses!
