Things I Know — Cheeky Christmas Pranks You can play on your kids!


This is what I know this week in regards to Christmas…. 58 Days today and Counting!

As you know, myself and Tina from Tina Gray{dot) me are doing weekly blog posts about 100 Days to Christmas, so be sure to check them out! I’m linking up again this week with Shae from Yay for Home!

So remember when I told you all about Buddy Bear, our Elf from the North Pole? No? Ok I’ll wait while you go back and read about it…

Meet Buddy Bear...

Buddy Bear first came to stay with us last year and he did some pretty funny jokes on the kids, our favourite being turning the toilet water green, but it freaked out Master D when he was still half asleep and went to use the toilet in the morning only to see that the water was green! It make for a funny story for him to call Nanna about!!! He also brought them home made gingerbread men and new pj’s so I know the kids are excited to see him again! They know its not long after Master D’s birthday that he will come!

This year however, the kids are all a year older and I have a feeling that Buddy Bear is going to be back and with some funny tricks up his sleeve! Now that Pinterest is really popular (you knew that right?!) I can see Buddy spending time on there looking for ideas.

Here are just some that I know he will want to do to them!!

A spot of fishing maybe? Or even might get stuck under a glass

Maybe have an icecream from the freezer as its cold like the North Pole or read a Christmas Book.

Change the colour of the milk or change all the photos in the frames to pictures of himself!

I know that whatever fun things Buddy Bear brings to our place, the kids are going to have a ball this Christmas!

What tricks would your Elf get up to, if they were to come and stay at your place this holidays? 


  1. He looks nothing but mischievous. Completely mischievous.

  2. Cute ideas! It would be so fun as a kid to wake up each morning and see what new things the elf had been up to! I love it!

  3. Oh wow, Kirsty, I love this.
    I have been known to leave footprints and notes but this is simply awesome.
    Thanks for some cool inspiration….. I might get something similar and tell them it is around and ‘WATCHING’…. Bahahahaha ;-)

  5. Oh what fun! I have no idea what we are doing for Christmas, probably the same as last year which involved three full on days with different family members.
    I’d so take him to the houses and leave him in places like the toilet to freak people out :)

  9. That is such a cute idea. Can I just fess up again that I am rubbish at all this crafty, fun, christmas goodness? I love it but it would be so much easier if you could just send the little fella to my house when he’s done at yours…please?!

  16. LOL! that is just such a cute idea!! You really DO LOVE Christmas don’t you! Love seeing all the stuff you get up to just to make it that extra special. I think the coloured milk idea is pretty good. And the ice cream one! Give them that little surprise. :)

  18. Great ideas, Kirsty! Unfortunately I think my kids would really freak out if I hid a buddy elf somewhere unexpected – sometimes they’re no fun at all!!!!
