5 Creative Elf on the Shelf Ideas for Your Twister Printable
My daughter studied an Elf on the Shelf.
She asked, “How can they eat when they can’t use their fingers?”
It was a valid question.
She knew even the best elf could hold on tight to a reindeer when they travel back and forth from Santa’s North Pole work shop.
So for this Twister game, I knew our elf needed something a little more ‘realistic’ for his friends (and my kid’s villain toys) to play this game besides using an elf Twister spinner.
Included in this printable game is an elf dice, so he can hold and roll with his tiny hands.
It’s the great way to make a new spin on a fun Christmas tradition.
And to help you with this printable, here are 5 ways you can use it with your elf this Christmas season:
- Have your elf set up the Twister game with his friends, using the dice as the spinner.
2. Have your elf draw a picture of his/her friends playing this game.
3. Take a photo of your elf playing Twister by himself, with funny captions like “Elf on the Shelf gets twisted!”
4. Invite your kids to play their Twister game (if you have one at home) and see who can hold the most poses before falling over. Your elf will report the winner to Santa Claus.
5. Draw the final results of a mini tournament with your elf and his friends, assigning each one a color from the printable for some friendly competition.
The possibilities are endless with this Twister printable.
Tips For Getting Your Kids Involved With Their Elf on the Shelf
Last year was my family’s first year doing an Elf on the Shelf.
I had no idea how much time, stress, and all things creative ideas parents need to come up with for their scout elves every single night.
So, to help you not stress over this holiday tradition, you can use these Elf on the Shelf props in your own home.
Your kids will try and break the Elf on the Shelf rule of “not touching the elf”, especially after they see your favorite elf doll playing this Twister game.
But there are some fun ideas you can use to involve your kids with their elf and make this holiday tradition even more special.
- Let your kids help plan the elf’s shenanigans for the night.
Ask them “What do you think your elf will do tomorrow”? Then plan that activity either for the next day or later in the week (for an added surprise).
This gives them a sense of ownership and creativity while taking some of the pressure off of you.
- Have your child make predictions about where they think their elf will hide next.
Your special elf could hide in a different spot each night.
A great idea for your elf’s antics can include:
- hiding in the Christmas tree
- inside the fridge next to the cookies
- or maybe your littles might find their elf sitting on some toilet paper in a completely new location (like the laundry room).
Does Your Elf Report To Santa Claus
Yes, your cute elf reports to Santa every night this time of year for the entire month of December.
December might feel like a long time to plan new activities and places for your elf every day, but this is one stress you don’t have to worry about because of all the amazing printables at your fingertips on this site.
Your young children might be sad to see their little elf go on Christmas Eve, but you’ll be high-fiving yourself through this entire holiday season.
Because you rocked every single night by using this Elf on the Shelf Twister game and the other printable templates you’ll find on this site.
We hope you and your children enjoy this fun game.
Remember, the whole purpose of the elf’s visit is to bring joy, laughter, and magic into your home during the holiday season.
