Get ready for some extra Elf fun this holiday season with our Elf Twister Free Printable. Make Elf on the Shelf easy with these cute free printable props ready for an Elf game night!
Last holiday season I caved after years of avoiding the elf tradition, and we jumped in with our own elf. I could not believe the joy it brought to our Christmas season! But I also couldn’t believe how quickly I needed a good idea for a fun elf antic every night. This year, I was ready with some Elf on the shelf kits and had our designer create some of our printable templates to use. And I’m so excited to share the cutest Elf on the Shelf free printable for you to use with your family!
How the Elf Works
As a quick reminder, the elf typically arrives December 1st with an arrival letter and a promise to have so much fun while they remind kids to be good this holiday season. Many families execute the tradition differently, ours included. Some believe the elf reports back to Santa each night, and many say kids shouldn’t touch the elf. We personally cut the naughty and we’re watching you message, and make the elf a fun character to encourage us to be kind and have fun. Some use the Elf on the Shelf, some use scout elf dolls, and some use other characters altogether.
It starts with an elf arrival with a welcome letter. If you need one, grab our free editable Elf on the Shelf letter. After the initial elf’s arrival, most come up with creative ideas to enjoy all month until Christmas time. Many love to keep the Christmas spirit alive with a fun tradition using a printable calendar. Move your elf to a new location each day, and let the kids find them in their new spot, adding excitement to the lead-up to Christmas.
The specifics may vary, but the idea that children love to wake up and find new elf antics is pretty universal! From simple hiding palces, to elaborate scenes, parents and older children often have a lot of fun with elf antics this time of year. This may include a small prank, fun activities to do during the month of December, or a fun game to play with the elf. And we’ve taken the game part quite literally!
Whether you’re finding this post a couple months in advance to plan out the elf fun, or you need a good idea immediately, we think you’re going to love this printable!
