Halloween games – elf tossing today!

Everyone at the North Pole loves Halloween!  It is so much fun while we count down the days to Christmas.

Today the junior Elf Scouts decided to try “self elf tossing”.

This is a good game for teaching junior Elf Scouts how to quickly run and hide before someone sees them.  They have to scramble and scurry as fast they can when I shout “Go!”.

When I shout “Go!”, they have to run and jump as quickly as they can into the mouth of a pumpkin.   If they don’t make the jump right into the pumpkin mouth hole, they have to clamber and climb to get inside as fast as they can.

All the other elves cover their eyes while the Grumpy Elf counts down from 10.  When he gets to zero, all the other elves open their eyes.  If one of the junior scouting elves hasn’t hidden inside a pumpkin, they are out!  The scouting elves keep doing this until there is a winner.  To make it harder each time, the Grumpy Elf moves the pumpkin mouths up higher and higher and further and further away.

The junior scouting elves love this silly game and it is good practice for when they go to people’s homes at Christmas and have to be quick elves who can jump on shelves!


P.S. What other things do you think the scouting elves have to practice before they go to people’s homes for Christmas?

Elves bobbing for apples

Elves love bobbing for apples! It is a fun part of Hallowistmas at the North Pole!  (Hallowistmas is just a silly name we have for Halloween.)

Here are two elves bobbing for apples and trying not o get wet.  Have you ever played this Halloween game?

The elves love doing this silly game so much.  They like it so much they once tried it with a Christmas twist.

The elves were busy counting down the days to Christmas and chatting with Santa.  But, they were getting a little bit bored waiting for Christmas to come.  It was just after Halloween but Christmas was still a long way away.

Then Clumsy the Elf  got a silly idea.  A silly, silly idea.

“Why don’t we try to try bobbing for presents?” Clumsy said, “It would be fun!”


Oh, maybe I’ll tell you the rest of the story another time.  This story is supposed to be about Halloween traditions after all.  Anyway, you can only imagine what happened. 😊

For now, let’s just say that if you ever get a wet present for Christmas, you’ll know the elves were bobbing for presents again!



P.S. What do you think happened when the elves bobbed for apples?

Elves Halloween Party is one of the elve’s fav times of the year!

The elves love Halloween. It gives them something to do while they count down the days to Christmas. But it is also because Halloween is a lot of fun!

Elves are very good at disguises and at simply disappearing.  Here are two junior elves who are practising wearing disguises before going to someone’s home closer to Christmas.

I think Sherlock Elf is going to have to give them a few more lessons on disguises though.  Just putting a pumpkin on your head isn’t going to fool any children.  Kids are WAY too smart for that Halloween costume!

As you can tell though, elf scouts really get into the spirit of Halloween.  This year they might even post a few more fun photos of the antics they get up. And who knows what will happen at this year’s big elf Halloween party! All I can tell you is that it is going to be elf-epic!

Just remember, the only thing sillier than an elf…

Is a silly elf at Halloween!

Happy Halloween!


P.S. What silly things do you think the elves will do before Halloween?

Christmas is so close.  I can almost taste the cookies! Good thing Santa’s new sleigh is ready.  (Well, that’s what the elves call it, anyway.)

There isn’t much time left until Christmas.  So, we are we are very busy getting ready for the big night here at the North Pole.  It is a very silly and crazy time of the year here!

There are just a few things left to do.  
The elves are all sleeping.  
So I thought I would share
