Regina Speech Centre

Several years back the Christmas tradition of "Elf on the Shelf" hit the mainstream. Parents everywhere were picking up this little elf in order to spread some Christmas cheer and mystery throughout their house for their children. Parents pride themselves on getting as creative as possible when it comes to setting this little guy down, the more "magical" the better, as their kids would expect nothing less.

If you are ever in need of a way to shock your guests, or you want to play a bit of a prank on your kids, here are several ways you can set up your joyful elf for maximum shock value.
