Elf Scavenger Hunt
Santa is extremely busy this time of year, and needs all the elves working around the clock to ensure the presents are made on-time.
But it appears some of his elves have gone missing!
Scattered around an outdoor area/ playground, hide a large number of print-out elves for the children to find.
Tell the children how many elves are lost in total and then let them explore the outdoor area in search of Santa’s helpers.
This activity can be replayed if children enjoy it, with the person who finds the most elves winning a prize.
Alternatively, children colour in and design their own print-out elf, and write their name on the back.
An Educator collects all the elves once they are finished, and hides them in the playground. Children then must locate their own elf and once they do, they can write a message to Santa on it or what Christmas means to them.
An exciting game with many possible substitute outcomes, the children will love immersing themselves in securing Santas production line.
Christmas is a thrilling time of year, and even if some of your children do not celebrate the occasion, modifying some of these activities to celebrate the holidays in general is always an option.
