Looking For Covid Safe Holiday Activities? Go Elfing!!!
Updated: Dec 19, 2020
Yes we're in a pandemic this holiday season. We all need to practice social distancing to stay healthy, yet still enjoy the season. Looking for a safe activity to do this holiday season? Look no more! Elfing is a fun and safe way to spread holiday cheer! And we could definitely all use more cheer during these unprecedented times. Elfing is even easier with the free printable I've created below!
This idea is like "Booing" your friends during Halloween. With no trick or treating this past Halloween, "Booing" was safe and brought my kids so much joy. With Christmas coming, we knew we had to plan festive activities that were safe.
Here Are The Elfing Directions:
Think about something you'd like to give your friends, family & neighbors. You can bake something yummy, buy something yummy or gift non edible treats. It's totally up to you and considering your recipient. Below are two easy, kid friendly baking gift ideas. Both recipes are great for Elfing because they are super easy, kid friendly recipes! The concept is to let someone know they are loved. What's a better way to show love than with a baked good???
2. Wrap up your surprise as festive as you'd like. Using compostable packaging is even better! If you make the Holiday Chocolate Chip Bread, here's a compostable gift wrapping idea. This eco friendly wrapping is not just beautiful, it's smells amazing! Wrap all your gifts this way!
3. Add the printable below to explain that they got "Elfed" and how they can continue to spread the cheer.
4. Place the"We've Been Elfed" sign in a front window or door. This let's other Elfers know that you've received a surprise.
5. Wait till it's dark to drop off your surprise. You can drop off in the daytime too. It's just more festive & mysterious at night. Ring your friend's doorbell and run as fast as you can! My kids loved this part the most. I usually texted the friend to let them know the surprise was from us and it was safe to open.
The free printable I made makes elfing simple and easy! This printable below looks great in color and in black and white!
With everything that is happening, we can still enjoy this holiday season. Remember your blessings and count them often. Have a safe and joyful Holiday this year!
