I think the games are the most exciting part of this pack for me :) We are hosting an Elf on the Shelf Shoebox Shindig for our daughter's preschool kiddos and I can't wait to do the Elf Scavenger Hunt with them! What is an Elf Scavenger Hunt? Well, I am glad you asked! Just print out the elves on card stock and laminate them so you can use them year after year. We also do a Ghost Hunt and a Turkey Hunt, so I use paint stirrers ~ they were generously given to me for free at our local Lowes ~ and I use velcro to attach them to the sticks. This way I can swap out the "object" of our hunt all year.
|Outdoor Elf Scavenger Hunts are the best!|
By the way ~ if you are a big fan of The Elf on the Shelf you will definitely want to get the movie if you haven't already. It is ADORABLE! It is perfect for preschoolers too since it is only about half and hour. Our daughter begs to watch it over and over until Mommy can't take it anymore ;) I highly recommend it!
Another excited part of the pack is the cute label and tag for some Magical Elf Mint Seeds to be delivered directly from the North Pole compliments of you Elf on the Shelf! The Happy Home Fairy had a GREAT post about Magic Mint Seeds and we did it last year. We planted our "seeds" in the first snow of the year! What sprouts up in truly magical! CANDY CANES!
