Elf on the Shelf Activities

I know the struggle is real every December. Elf on the Shelf starts off as super-fun and awesome, but then the busyness of December hits and it becomes hard to find quick and easy things to do with everyone’s favorite Elf.

Read on as I’ve got you covered with some free and easy Elf on the Shelf activity ideas. The first Elf on Shelf printables include a code-breaker game and an invitation to play.

Elf on the Shelf Activity Sheet

The first of the free elf printables is an Elf on the Shelf code breaker game.

Download and print this Elf on the Shelf activity sheet and it’s ready to go. The Elf’s secret message will be revealed once they have broken the code.

This elf on the shelf coded message is super easy for early school-age kids and you could also help them if needed. All you need to do is print it and add a pencil next to it with your Elf, and it’s ready to be discovered in the morning.

Elf on the Shelf Printable Props

Here’s the second of the Elf on Shelf printables that will make your Elf adventures easier when you need a last-minute fix. We all know that elves absolutely love to play board games. You knew that right?

If you need  a quick idea, pretend to have your Elf play Jenga, Monopoly, or cards with any toys you have on hand. Barbie, Buzz Lightyear, Teddy Bear – they will all be happy to be part of the board game action.

Elf on the Shelf idea

Pose the toys around your child’s favorite board game and add this Elf on the Shelf printable below. It is an invitation to your child from their Elf to play the board game the following day.

Download it, print it, and write in your children’s names, the name of the board game, and time and date of when you’d like to help them to play it with the Elf.

Quick tip: Make sure you specify a time that suits you. The kids will want to play it straight away when they find the invitation, but 6:00am is probably not the best time for you!

Elf on the Shelf Signs

I’ve also created some fun Elf on the Shelf signs. These Elf on the Shelf printable signs are great to use throughout the entire duration of the Elf’s adventures. You can bring it out when the Elf makes his first appearance and leave it in a prominent place, only to be whisked away on Christmas Day when the Elf disappears again.

Print it and place it in a frame or even stick it to the wall with some washi tape (so that the paint stays on your wall when you remove the tape!). When printing it, you can make it either A4 or letter size or scale it to suit your printer.

There are two original designs for these Elf on the Shelf printables. If you are an Elf on the Shelf purist, you are probably okay with the Elf keeping a close-eye on the activities (and behavior) of your household.

However, if surveillance is not quite your scene, then the simple ‘Elf now on duty’ sign might be more to your liking. The elf being on duty could mean anything you want it to mean.

Elves don’t have to be naughty. They can be kind and generous and thoughtful elves too.
