Included in our free Elf movie printable set are four fun movie signs:
- Let’s watch a movie!
- It’s movie time!
- Do you wanna watch a movie?

The supplies are simple. To put together this cute movie idea for Elf, grab the following (optional) supplies.
Tape or hot glue
Printer paper (I prefer cardstock)
Print the Elf on the Shelf Movie Night printable cards on paper (or card stock) and cut out each card along the border.
To create a sign for the Elf to hold, hot glue the card to the top of a paper straw. You can also attach the cards to the front of the popcorn containers with tape.
Add the microwave popcorn and movie candy to the inside of the popcorn containers.

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.
