Unscramble the Elf on the Shelf Words

Christmas is a time (or certainly should be) when the kids get to have a bit more fun either at school or at home.

This Elf word scramble is a great game for elementary and middle school-aged kids. I have added two versions of the word game. One has no clues at all, and one has the actual words around the side of the puzzle to make it easier for younger kids.

Print off as many copies as you need and just have fun. Let me know in the comments what your hardest word was.

We love creating free Elf on the Shelf activities, check out some of our favorites at the bottom of this post.

We also love playing mad libs all year round, but this Christmas fun mad libs book is another great fun educational Christmas activity to keep them entertained.

The first sheet is the easiest word scramble. They all have 13 words to find, but this version below has the answers written in red around the sides. This will make it much easier for younger children.

The second word scramble is much harder, although the words are the same as the easy version. There are no answers at all, so the children have to try and unscramble the words. The only clue is, all of the words are related in some way to the Elf on the Shelf.

Encourage the kids to write this December with our free If I Were An Elf writing worksheet.
