Elf on the Shelf Ideas to Promote Great Behavior
So many parents enlist the Elf on the Shelf to remind their kids that he/she’s keeping tabs on them and letting Santa know if they should be on the “naughty” or “nice” list.
Here’s how you can use this concept to enhance the Elf experience while encouraging your child’s best behavior.
It works like this….
- There are 8 Elf Skills
- Each evening, have the Elf leave a challenge or message alternating through one skill, in order.
- Rotate through each one 3 times equals 24 days of Elf Skill starting on December 1st.
- For even more furn and greater results, the child can earn 5 points each day they complete the challenge, and then the Elf will leave a small gift once they receive 20 points. Gifts may include: candy, money, arts supplies, etc.
Here are some examples of life skills you may use. You can customize the life skill activities to be appropriate to any behavior you want your child to practice.
We hope these Elf ideas inspire you to use this concept to enhance the traditional elf experience.
Have fun with less stress!
