Today is Halloween at the North Pole (or, as we call it, Hallowistmas). The elves all make the greatest costumes you can imagine. But, the junior Scouting Elves have been having a hard time. They can’t decide what to wear. This will be their first Hallowistmas party after all. They want to wear something special.
So, the junior Scouting Elves were standing around. Those cheeky elves were trying their best to think up ideas for costumes. They were scratching their heads. They were scratching their noses. Those silly elves were even scratching their toeses. But none of them had any ideas.
🎵 Then they heard someone say “Whee!”
So they jumped up to see,
What and where could this sound be?
Then they saw Clumsy,
wrapped head to knee,
waddling out from the present wrapping machine!
🎵 We have! We have!
The junior elves shouted with glee!
We all know just what we will be!
So they jumped one by one
by holly, jolly gee
the present wrapping machine!
🎵 Those junior elves
were wrapped to a tee.
They came out like mummies
dressed up for the elves’ Halloween party.
What a sight to see!
And boy, what a Halloween party it was!
P.S. What did you dress up as for Halloween this year?
But junior Elf Scouts in particular love sweets. Junior Elf Scouts also have to practice their elf skills before they get to go to people’s homes just before Christmas.
One skill junior Elf Scouts have to practice is being sneaky. Of course, it doesn’t take these scamps long to figure out that being sneaky is a really good skill to have. And it is a really, really good skill to have at Halloween. Especially when Mrs. Claus starts putting out the Halloween candy!
So, the Grumpy Elf was walking down the hallway looking for his tumshie. Mrs. Claus had a few candy bowls out getting ready for the big Halloween party.
Out of the corner of his eye, Grumpy thought he saw something move. He stopped. Grumpy stood very still. Grumpy took a few more steps. Then he thought he heard someone giggling. The giggling stopped as soon as Grumpy stopped.
Grumpy started walking again. But this time, he turned quickly and took a photo of this junior Elf Scout doing a “Mission Impossible Halloween Elf”. The Scout Elf snaffled up as many candies as he could and then quickly disappeared up to the ceiling. There were lots of giggles coming from over Grumpy’s head.
Even Grumpy “snickered” a little under his breath.
Happy Halloween everyone!
P.S. What kind of Halloween candy do you like best?
A very important junior Elf Scout skill is being able to hide so no one can spot you.
Today, the elves had lots of fun carving pumpkins for Halloween. The elves carved all kinds of pumpkins. They carved scary pumpkins. They carved funny pumpkins. Then they tidied up their mess and toasted pumpkin seeds.
When the elves came back, they found this pumpkin. But the other elves know that the junior Elf Scouts are always practicing their scouting skills. That is because the junior Elf Scouts have to be really good at their elf hiding skills before they can go to someone’s home for Christmas.
So, when the other elves came back from toasting pumpkin seeds, they noticed something. They noticed something funny. They noticed a little trail of footprints and pumpkin seeds going to this pumpkin.
Now elves love playing tricks on each other. So the other elves started talking very loudly about putting a candle in their new jack-o-lanterns. They even got some candles and started to put them into this pumpkin!
The two junior Elf Scouts came running out from hiding in the pumpkin. “No! No!”, they said. That’s when all the other elves started rolling around giggling.
That’s when the two junior Elf Scouts knew they’d been tricked. They started giggling and rolling around too.
Then they all sat down and had some more of Mrs. Claus’ fancy toasted pumpkin seeds. They are very good with hot cocoa and those yummy imported marshmallows I bring home for her.
And now you know why elves never hide in pumpkins!
P.S. Can you find the two elves in the photo? Are the junior Elf Scouts good at hiding?
Halloween candy hot tub is the perfect place to relax after a hard day learning how to be a scouting elf.
The elves love counting down to Halloween! So, what a fun way to mix Halloween and their Elf Scout lessons. Nothing like soaking your tootsies after learning how to scurry around so children cannot see you watching them. The elves even learn how to blend it so it is hard to spot them. They look so natural in the tub you might not even spot them. This is a good skill to work on before they go to children’s homes at Christmastime.
So what goes in the elve’s special hot tub? Everyone knows that elves love candy, candy canes, candy corn and syrup after all. Nothing feels better!
And don’t forget that you can chat with Santa Claus (that’s me!) about the silly elves in their jacuzzi filled with Halloween candy.
Stay tuned for more photos of elf scouts preparing for Christmas and having some Halloween fun.
P.S. Do you think it would be fun to have a hot tub like the elves? What Halloween candy would you fill your tub with?
I thought I’d surprise everyone with a quick chat!
