Elf On The Shelf Printables
It’s that time of year. It’s Elf on the Shelf season and he’s about to start showing up in houses everywhere! (You can even get your own personalized Elf On The Shelf Welcome letter printable here).
Of course, he’s there to spread Christmas magic but the Christmas tradition also includes making sure the kids are on their best behavior!
What is Elf on the Shelf?
In case you aren’t familiar with the adorable Elf on the Shelf tradition, it’s a newer Christmas season activity that’s gained popularity in recent years. The story is that one of Santa’s scout elves visits your home each day in December. Then he flies to the North Pole each night, reporting back to Santa about the children’s good behavior (or naughty behavior).
When he returns, the kids usually wake up to a fun surprise. Sometimes he likes to do a little decorating when he comes back, like he did for us last year.
My youngest loves waking up each morning to look for “Elfy” (yes, that’s our elf’s name, original, right?). If you want to join in and give your kids some extra incentive to stay on Santa’s ‘nice’ list, you can buy an Elf on the Shelf kit on Amazon. It comes with your very own scout elf as well as a book explaining the tradition.

Fun Ideas for Printable Elf Games
These games are the perfect tiny elf size! That means they’d make a great prop for your mischievous Elf on the Shelf. Part of the fun is posing him in different places in your house (this Elf Flex kit makes posing him easier) and having him surprise the kids with different activities. How cute would it be to have your little elf working on a miniature Christmas maze or doing some coloring.
Even if you don’t have your own elf, your kids will have so much fun with these free elf games.
- Each set of printable cards are small and portable. That makes them a great idea if you need fun activities for your family road trip.
- They’re a fun way to alleviate boredom during snow days, weekends, and vacation from school.
- They’d make a great holiday classroom or children’s party activity.
