For my fourth-grader's class Christmas party, I created an elf-themed party. I used these Elf labels for the water bottles:
I made the placemats from wrapping paper ($1 per roll at Dollar Tree).
On the tables were “Be an Elf” and “Christmas Would You
Rather” sheets to keep the kids entertained while they ate. Everyone loved the
Elf names - even the parents!
The party was at 10am, so we had donuts, pigs-in-blankets, cheese sticks and
After the kids ate, we played “Elf Four Corners”. This was an easy, fun and
FREE game that everyone loved!
I put a sign in each of the four corners of the
room. For our game, each sign was one of the elf’s food groups: candy corn,
candy cane, candy and syrup. (You can customize the names of the corners for
any party. Younger grades might also appreciate four recognizable pictures
instead of words.)
One kid is “the caller” and they turn their back on the room. All the other
kids then get up and move to one of the four corners. Every corner has to have
at least one kid in it. The “caller” then says stop and announces one of the
four corners and turns around to face the room. Everyone in that corner is now
OUT and they must sit down. Play continues until there is only 1 kid left and
they are the winner.
We played three rounds of this game. Each round lasted about 8-10 minutes.
The kids loved this game!
