The holiday season is upon us, and it’s time to add a touch of magic and fun to your Elf on the Shelf tradition. If you’re looking for an exciting way to entertain your little ones and their mischievous elf companion, we have just the thing for you: Elf on the Shelf Cornhole Boards!
DIY Cornhole Board Elf on the Shelf Game
The Elf cornhole printable set includes two charming boards, one in festive red stripes and the other in vibrant green with white stars, both featuring the words “Snowball Toss.” Get ready to embark on an interactive elf game that will bring laughter and joy to your home.
Let’s dive into the details of this delightful holiday activity and super fun elf game.
To create your Elf on the Shelf Cornhole Boards, you’ll need the following materials:
- The printable Elf on the Shelf Cornhole Board template (download here)
- Mini pom-poms or mini marshmallows or cotton balls
- A color printer
- Cardstock paper or printer paper (this is the best cardstock which is perfect for your Elf printables)
- Glue or Tape
- The Elf on the Shelf Doll
Step 1: Download and Print Your Cornhole Boards
Start by downloading the Elf Cornhole Board template from the provided link. Make sure to use a color printer for the best results. The boards will fold best with cardstock which will provide them with some sturdiness, though it’s not necessary. Colors will vary based on different printers. Once printed, carefully cut out both the red and green boards.
Step 2: Assemble Your Cornhole Boards
Once but, begin to fold the boards into shape. Use glue or tape to hold the folded ends. If you did not use cardstock, see if you can add extra tape to make them strong. This step will ensure that your cornhole boards can withstand the excitement of the game.
Step 3: Set Up the Game
Place the two cornhole boards in a suitable playing area. Make sure to position them at a reasonable distance apart for the elf-sized game. You can use a table, a countertop, or any other flat surface.
Step 4: Gather Your Mini Pom-Poms, Cotton Balls, or Mini Marshmallows
Prepare your mini pom-poms or mini marshmallows – these will serve as your “snowballs” for the game. Place them in a small bowl or container near the cornhole boards for easy access.
How to Play:
Now that everything is set up, it’s time to start the Snowball Toss game with your Elf on the Shelf!
- Each player (not including your mischievous elf – do not touch!) takes turns tossing mini pom-poms or mini marshmallows onto the cornhole boards.
- The objective is to land the “snowballs” onto the boards, aiming for the holes. Each hole is worth a certain number of points.
- Keep track of the points for each successful toss. You can create your own scoring system or use the following as a guideline:
- Landing a “snowball” on the board: 1 point
- Tossing a “snowball” into a hole: 3 points
- The player with the most points at the end of the game wins a special treat or prize from the family Elf on the Shelf.
Get ready to make this holiday season even more enchanting with the Elf on the Shelf Cornhole Board game. It’s a fantastic way to engage your little ones and their elf companion in a fun, interactive activity. Whether you choose mini pom-poms or mini marshmallows as your “snowballs,” you’re sure to create cherished memories that will last a lifetime. So, download the printable set, assemble your cornhole boards, and let the festive fun begin! Enjoy your Elf on the Shelf adventure, and may your home be filled with holiday joy and laughter.
Happy holidays and happy elfin’!

Elf on the Shelf is a Christmas Tradition. The tradition has a book and an 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, that the Elf is not touched each evening or his Christmas magic will be lost! Each family is able to name their special elf. The elves return to their home (Santa’s North Pole Work shop) every Christmas Eve.
