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…
Although we at Skillz of Patchogue appreciate the concept, we’ve put together a cool adaptation to help utilize Elf on the Shelf as another support tool just like our instructors!
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.
- Rotate through each one 3 times equals 24 days of Elf SKILLZ starting December 1st.
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 include candy, money, art supplies, etc.
Here are the SKILLZ:

We hope the ELF SKILLZ inspires you to use this concept in a more positive and productive manner!
