Top Tips for the Best Elf on the Shelf® Party

  1. DECORATE with cups, plates, napkins and more adorned with Santa’s red-and-white suited helpers! The items shown here are included in the Scout Elf Party Pack, which contains everything needed for a festive celebration. If you’re in a pinch, simply use Santa’s favorite colors—red, white and green—to set a spirited stage for your seasonal celebration!
  2. INVITE your Scout Elf to the festivities. They are the guest of honor, after all, and when you leave them a specially addressed invite, they may be inspired to bring a tasty treat or special surprise just for the celebration straight from the North Pole.
  3. PLAY games inspired by the North Pole, like pin the tail on the reindeer, polar freeze tag or Christmas character dress-up. Use your imagination as you invent games, or use the Scout Elves’ game booklet, full of fun ideas.
  4. SERVE treats that dessert-loving Scout Elves would approve of! This is your chance to let kids catch a sugar rush from totally delectable treats just like ones Mrs. Claus bakes in her sweet shop. For inspiration, check out these recipes.
  5. GIVE a little parting gift—it’ll feel just like Christmas morning! Departing guests may enjoy candy, small Christmas-themed trinkets, or anything dressed up in festive reds and greens to remember all the fun they had at your ultimate Elf on the Shelf® party!
