- Jenga: This photo contains Jenga blocks featuring reindeer teetering on a precarious edge, injecting suspense into the scene.
- Dominoes: A dominos trail leads to a pair of reindeer eagerly anticipating their next move in this head-to-head competition.
- Football: A football field in the snow showcases Rudolph as the star quarterback about to execute a daring pass.
- Sack Race: Small sacks are staged to create a mini-sack race, capturing the cheerfulness of a Dasher and Rudolph.
- Soccer: In this silly photo, a soccer field with a tiny soccer ball, spotlighting a not-so-skilled reindeer.
- Twister: A red-nosed reindeer in a summersault over a colorful Twister mat, creates this hilarious photo sure to evoke laughter.
- Piñata: Suspend in the area is a small piñata featuring a blindfolded reindeer armed with a tiny bat, poised to take a swing and unleash a shower of festive treats.
- Capturing the Winners: To add an extra layer of excitement, there is a Polaroid photo featuring the winners of the reindeer games. Pose your elf alongside the victorious participants, showcasing their jubilant expressions.
- Celebrating Dasher: Finally, commemorate the highlight of the games with the special Polaroid featuring Dasher adorned with race medals. This adds a heartwarming touch to the festivities, emphasizing the spirit of camaraderie among Santa’s reindeer. Of course with the name Dasher, he would receive the gold medal.
Setting the Scene:
It’s simple to stage this scene. Download and print the Reindeer Game Photos. Once the set is downloaded and printed, cut out the chalkboard(s) and photos of the reindeer games. You can choose if you want to use the elf-sized chalkboard print or the larger board. Or stage both, the ideas are endless.
A delightful chalkboard design that provides a reindeer games lesson as if your North Pole Visitor was delivering clear and easy-to-follow instructions for each game. Use double-sided tape, to washi tape to hang the photos and chalkboard. We gave The Elf on the Shelf a stick to use as a pointer for the reindeer games lesson.
With the printable chalkboard lesson and Polaroid photos, you can effortlessly stage an enchanting display that captures the joy and merriment of the holiday season. Watch as your little ones marvel at the mischievous antics of their elf, adding a touch of magic to this special time of year.

What is Elf on the Shelf?
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.
