Fun Friday: Elf on the Shelf Hide and Seek Game

Snowflake, our Elf!

Snowflake, our Elf!

My girls love their Elf on the Shelf.  They were anxious for their Elf to return after Thanksgiving.  Every morning they search for Snowflake to see where she is hiding or what she has gotten into.   I was at Barnes and Noble recently and came across the Elf on the Shelf Hide and Seek Game.

Hide and seek is a game we always turn to when we have play dates and we run out of activities.  However, with the cold winter months ahead it’s hard to play hide and seek in small NYC apartments.  The Elf on the Shelf Hide and Seek Game comes with a musical Elf with a shelf base and makes our favorite game easier to play indoors.  For ages 3 and up.  Two or more players are required to play. There are multiple ways to play, mix it up and make it different each time you play.

The Basic Game: Someone hides the elf and everyone else tries to find him!  The elf talks and plays Jingle Bells to help you find him.  Three additional ways to play are included! 

To Win:  Every time a player/team finds The Elf on the Shelf they get to put a gift token in their sleigh.  The first player/ team to collect three gift tokens in their sleigh wins!

We have brought our Elf on the Shelf hide an seek game to many play dates and family gatherings.  Fun for the entire family and kids of all ages.  The girls love hiding it in hard spots like cabinets or under blankets to make it harder for adults who play with them.  We keep it simple at play dates, and we don’t use the game pieces and take turns hiding the Elf.  A great gift for the Holidays or to have for a Holiday get together!


Listen to find the Elf


Happy Hiding!
