Magical Arrival

Whether your elf is a new friend to your family or a returning friend, here are some fun ways to make his, or her, arrival magical! 

Elf Friends 

I find it especially fun to pair our scout elf with friends. Be it Minnie Mouse or a fellow elf, there’s endless possibilities with friends! 

Food Props

Need something last minute and on hand? No problem! Just go search your kitchen for something inspiring! 

Christmas Tree Games

It’s always fun to make our scout elf into a little prankster! Some of my favorite Elf on the Shelf pranks feature the Christmas Tree! 
Take a look. 

The Spirit Of Giving

I think it is especially heart warming and sweet to use our elves to inspire kindness from our children. It’s up to us to teach them the “spirit of giving”. It doesn’t hurt to do it in a fun way! 

Skittles Magic Trick

This is one of my favorite Elf on the Shelf “tricks”, super fun “magic” for the kids! 

More Fun Ideas

There are so many fun ideas out there! Get creative and inspired, the fun is endless with these little guys! 

Saying Goodbye

The children are sad to see them go, but after a month of fun, parents love to watch these little guys leave. Send your little elf friend out with some flair! 

Hope you have a blast with your elf this year, I know we will!
