Many might say Jesus and basketball have no correlation. If you’re not a fan of basketball, I get why you would feel this way. However if you child love an oversized orange ball and the glow of lights on wooden court, then this basketball and Jesus thing might have something in common. Commonalities can include joy, excitement, and thrill.
How can I add basketball in Elf on the Shelf ideas?
Does your child love basketball? There are a few resources available for your Elf on the Shelf that will create a perfect Elf basketball idea.
First, the Elf on the Shelf website has an adorable basketball board you can print. This does list the Scout Elves at Play kit in the supplies but I think you can easily put this idea together without the kit. (The inflation of this kit is amazing to me, I got it at $22 years ago and now the MSRP is $58. I think you can use your own supplies or watch to see if the price drops!)
Want a printable Basketball Hoop + Scoreboard? Kids Activities blog has all you need.
Etsy has a few Elf Basketball Ideas too. I think Etsy creators are just so creative including when it comes to the Elf season. I say that a little biased, because I have an Etsy Elf shop too!
Take a look at this Hoop There It is Elf Basketball costume. Grab an Elf Basketball Set with a cute #1 foam hand accessories. This interactive Elf Basketball Court is perfect for the Elf on the Shelf and your child. Or get this Team North Pole Elf Basketball outfit.
Since many of these items are not Etsy Printables, they will have a limited supply. Grab yours before others do.

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.
