We all have heard the gingerbread man story. In this classic children’s story, the Gingerbread Man leaps out of the oven and runs away… “can’t catch me, I’m the gingerbread man!”
So who is the Ninjabread man?
What is the Ninjabread Man Story?
Written by C. J. Leigh , in this fun twist on the traditional Gingerbread man tale, four ninjas train to be the strongest, fastest, smartest, and sneakiest in the land. The story follows a very well-executed ninja theme with tons of action, and perfect rhythm, rhyme, and repetition. Will Ninjabread man win?
The Ninjabread Man Elf on the Shelf
Pulling from this funny adapted story, we used a few Elf supplies we had on hand.
Ninja Elf on the Shelf Supplies
- The Elf on the Shelf Doll
- Elf on the Shelf Costume for Karate/Ninja
- Elf on the Shelf Gingerbread Man Costume
- Elf on the Shelf Free Ninjabread Man Sign Printable
- Elf prop stands
This was really easy to put together. WE put on our Elf costumes and used the stand to prop the Elves. We printed and cut the Elf on the Shelf Ninjabread Man printable sign.
How did you get your Elf on the Shelf to stand?
Getting your Elf to stand can be quite trick. There are a few resources for getting Elf on the to stand. You can wire your Elf to make him bendable and strong, though this system doesn’t always support Elf for standing. You can get the Elf on the Shelf prop stand. Lastly, Scout Elf now has some fun Elf on the Shelf legs for standing.

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. The elves return to their home (Santa’s North Pole Work shop) every Christmas Eve. An Elf’s Story can also be found on DVD.
WHAT’S TRENDING? Take your kids on a HALLOWEEN SCAVENGER HUNT for candy or fun non-spooky goodies.
