Whether you have a funny elf or a mischievous elf, the little guy or gal will be even more fun in the morning when balloons are involved. Some of these easy ideas will be fun to create in just a few minutes with little prep.

A few others, like this fun idea of the elf arriving INSIDE a balloon may take a little more work, but the video below will show you just how to pull it off.

Whether you use balloons as a fun arrival idea for your elf – like them arriving in a hot air balloon ride – or just a great way to showcase a creative elf one morning – like blowing bubbles out of bubble gum… your kids will get a kick out of these fun ideas!

An elf inside a balloon – or in a hot air balloon – would not only make a great elf arrival, but could be a fun way for the elf to head back to the North Pole on Christmas Eve! Check out these other great Elf goodbye ideas.

And if you’re looking for even more Elf on the Shelf ideas, visit this post where I share my super easy list with you. I started on out on our own elf tradition as a super lazy elf Mom and still usually stick to that.
