Celebrating Birthdays — North Pole Style!

The Elf on the Shelf®: A Birthday Tradition, is a great opportunity for your family’s Scout Elf to visit your little one for a special 24-hours-only birthday visit. Here are seven unique ways in which you can create birthday memories with your elf that are sure to last a lifetime.

  • Read up on the Tradition

    Read The Elf on the Shelf®: A Birthday Tradition to your child so that they can learn all about how Santa and the Scout Elves celebrate birthdays. You can even read the story as a fun activity during your child’s birthday party – that way your guests can learn all about the North Pole birthday tradition, too!

  • Invite Your Scout Elf

    Has your Scout Elf been invited to your child’s special day yet? Don’t forget to ask Santa for special permission for your Scout Elf to make a trip all the way from the North Pole to celebrate with your family!

  • 10, 9, 8…We Can’t Wait!

    Countdown the days leading up to your child’s birthday with The Elf on the Shelf® Birthday Countdown and Game. Each kit comes with an advent-style felt wall hanging to keep track of the passing days. When the big day arrives, simply flip the board over to play the Birthday Game – a North Pole favorite! Children will wear a blindfold and take turns trying to place special birthday candles on the giant cupcake.

  • Start the Day Off Right

    Make any birthday extra special with a yummy morning treat—Mrs. Claus’ famous birthday pancakes! One of a Scout Elf’s favorite meals, the pancakes are a spirited, sprinkle-covered start to the big day. Get the recipe here.

  • Bring on the Birthday Chair

    Make sure your Scout Elf has access to The Elf on the Shelf® Birthday Chair Decoration Kit. Customizable and reusable, this kit gives Scout Elves exactly what they need to bring the tradition of decorating a birthday chair into your home.

Now you’re ready for your Scout Elf-themed social soiree! We can’t wait to see how you celebrated – please share your photos with us on Facebook and Twitter using #ElfBirthday!
