It turns out there are plenty of elves running amok in Macarthur.
Hundreds of locals sent us images of their cheeky elves making a mess, throwing parties and watching over their children.
If you are looking for Elf on the Shelf ideas and inspiration, check out the gallery above.
The Elf on the Shelf is a toy sent to children’s homes to report back to Santa on who has been naughty or nice.
While the cheeky little elves have a job to do, it seems they also like getting up to mischief along the way.
Is there an elf at your house? We’d love to feature some of the best photos and ideas from around Macarthur.
