Easy Elf Ideas included on our planner:

  1. Elf has arrived and thrown a party to get to know the other toys. Elf has even brought a drum kit to play a few Christmas tunes - download our printable drum kit sign & Elf Christmas music sheet (this wraps around an empty tin perfectly!)
  2. Elf is watching the TV, grab the remote - clever elf even set up a profile and saved all the Christmas movies to favourites! 
  3. Elf is helping with the laundry – all of the socks are mismatched and jumbled up. Have they even been hung on a washing line!?
  4. Elf is making breakfast but instead of cooking the eggs, they have all had faces drawn on and have googly eyes!
  5. Snow ball training today - use our free North Pole snowball target printable and make your own snowballs with paper or cotton wool.
  6. Elf has got into the make up bag - the grown ups have blusher on, lipstick and is that a moustache that has been drawn on mum?!
  7. Do you have a scanner? Elf has scanned the self and printed out LOTS of pictures!!
  8. Elf has made a mess with flour… and then written ‘child’s name’ did it – cheeky!
  9. Elf has robbed the piggy bank - but what did they find? Chocolate coins!!
  10. Great helper around the house, Elf is cooking breakfast. Fried eggs and mushrooms (the jelly sweets!) are on the menu today!
  11. Elf has made a drink. How did they get the milk blue? (food colouring)
  12. Let's do magic - Elf has two eggs sat in a bowl, with a note saying ‘Do you want to see magic?’ Switch these to chocolate eggs later in the day! 
  13. Elf is working at the Snowman nose recycling centre today - using a carrot and a grater!

  16. That’s not an angel at the top of our tree! (It’s an elf) And he made a paper aeroplane to get there - Elf flew with North Pole Airlines.
  17. Is that a snowman made from shaving foam on the bathroom floor? Elf has the can! 
  18. Elf has been wrapping presents – Elf is taped to the table and surrounded by wrapping paper! Did he even wrap the table??
