Elf on the Shelf is a new Holiday tradition for many families. Parents place this small, flexible elf doll in a different spot each day in December. Why should kids get all the fun? Try these Elf on the Shelf holiday activities for seniors:
- Elf Scavenger Hunt. Purchase multiple elves and place them throughout your community. It’s a fun way to ensure residents know about your amenities. Place elves in your fitness center, game room, library, or other areas of interest along with information about the amenity or program schedules.
- Find the Elf Contest. Place the elf in a different spot each morning. The first senior (or seniors) who spots the elf, brings it to the recreation manager for a daily prize. Then, that senior helps the manager hide the elf the next day.
Elf on the Shelf is also a perfect opportunity to bond with visiting grandchildren, too.
