Elf on the Shelf Target
First let’s talk about Elf on a Shelf and Target stores. Target department store is an excellent resource for buying Elf on the Shelf dolls and accessories online. Elf on the Shelf Target items include stands, scooters, prop kits, elf pets, elf costumes elf books and more.
From personal experience, many times, I have been able to purchase presale Elf on the Shelf at Target before accessories and props are even live. This allows me to purchase and “forget it” as the item ships, once the New Elf the Shelf products hit the shelves.

- In similar fashion, turn this into an Elf on the Shelf Bathroom idea. Just use toothpaste instead of Ketchup.
- Hang Elf from a zip line from the banister or top of the stairs. This can be made of ribbon and have Elf swing in toward the Target practice for landing.
- Use an Elf on the Shelf Parachute for Arrival and have Elf land on a bullseyes eye from the ceiling fan or the fire place.
- Write a note to Santa and ask him to deliver Christmas presents to the bulleyes eye. Place below the fireplace or on the Christmas tree and see if he delivers toys, stocking stuffers or small trinket.
- Reindeer poop is a little bit naughty (unless it’s chocolate and then oh so nice.) In this naughty elf idea, use your reindeer Elf pet and use the target practice printable for small reindeer poop pellets. Oh deer!
- Put the target below an Elf on the Shelf Toilet paper Roll Ball Run. See if the pom-poms land on the Target.
- For good behavior, add a special treat to the center of the bullseye like a cupcake with sprinkles scattered about.
- Use the bullseye at the end of an Elf on the Shelf Scavenger hunt for a small prize.
- For a last minute idea, place a cup of hot chocolate in the middle of the printable target. Use mini marshmallows and allow your child to toss them into the cup of hot cocoa for a silly elf activity.
- Grab a sling shot toy and cotton balls. This target is perfect for a little bit of mischief.

What is Elf on the Shelf?
Elf on the Shelf is a Christmas Tradition. The tradition has a book and a elf doll. The book is poetic and in rhyme sharing the purpose of the Elf’s visits. The Elf visits each Thanksgiving. He/She goes and returns from the North Pole each evening. Every morning he can be found in a new location in the house. The Elf has been found in the refrigerator, fishing in the toilet, writing messages on the mirror or hanging from the lights. It is VERY IMPORTANT, the Elf is not touch each evening or his Christmas magic will be lost! Each family is able to name their special elf. Santa’s helpers return to their home (Santa’s North Pole Work shop) every Christmas Eve. An Elf’s Story can also be found on DVD.
