Elf on the Shelf Challenges

Elf on the Shelf Challenges

Many parents enlist Elf on the Shelf to remind our kids that he/she’s keeping tabs on them and letting Santa know if they should be on the ‘naughty’ or ‘nice’ list…

We at Cape Martial Arts along with our awesome partners at SKILLZ have put together a new concept to use to help teach children at the same time we are having fun!

Here’s how it works:

  • There are 8 Elf SKILLZ.
  • Each night, have the Elf leave a challenge or message alternating through one skill, in order, along with whatever shenanigans they get into.
  • Rotate through each one 3 times equals 24 days of Elf SKILLZ and you are at Christmas!

For even more fun and better 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 can be anything you want!

Here are the SKILLZ:

  1. Manners
  2. Kindness
  3. Bravery
  4. Creativity
  5. Self-Control
  6. Loving
  7. Healthiness
  8. Cooperation

Don’t have an elf? We may be able to help with that also! We have a VERY LIMITED quantity of our own; “Nigel” the Ninja elf you can pick up at the school!
