Are you searching for new Elf on the Shelf ideas for kids? Get your family’s elf on board with the green living trend this Christmas with these creative, eco-friendly ideas.
Elf on the Shelf is a trend that isn’t going away! Every year, I like to come up with a theme for our family’s Elf on the Shelf ideas.
One year, our Elf was really naughty and got into everything, and the girls thought that was hilarious. Another year, our Elf wrote kind notes and did kind deeds. And the following year, our elves decided to be stewards of the Earth and teach our kids about green living.
If you’re a natural living family like us, I hope you’ll enjoy these ideas for making your Elf on the Shelf more crunchy and more in tune with eco-friendly living. Oh… and if you’re not into moving an elf every day, check out our Santa Camera Christmas Ornament for an alternative!
Say No to GMO Elf
This would be a really great setup to do after watching GMO OMG. That movie has a GMO free message even kids could relate to, and your elf could help reinforce that!
Let your elf help reinforce the importance of recycling this year. You can simply paint a recycling symbol on a wipes container or something similar and you’re set!
Natural Cleaning Elf
Is it time to mix up some more of your own cleaning products? Use that as an opportunity to stage this cute scene with your Elf on the Shelf.
Water Saving Elf
We’re in a huge drought in California, and our girls are well aware of it. Every day we drive by the lake and notice the water level is lower and lower. They love stuff like this!
Living in the mountains, we LOVE the outdoors. You can set up your Elf on the Shelf somewhere near the fireplace having his or her own camp out. Super fun for the kids!
There are so many creative Elf on the Shelf ideas for kids! We hope you enjoyed these ideas for teaching your kids about green living this Christmas.
