With this free printable Elf word search, the kids will be searching for 16 of the most popular Christmas Elf names.
If you have the Elf on the Shelf visit this is a great activity the kids will love to do. Also, it could give them some inspiration for a new name for their Elf.
We have included 16 of the most popular Elf names including Buddy and Twinkletoes.
Word searches are an excellent homeschool activity for when the kids just need a break. They are educational, but more importantly, they are fun.
The Elf on the Shelf comes to visit us a few times in the year, including our Halloween Elf on the Shelf that helps with decorations! If you are Elf mad you will also enjoy our favorite books about elves that will make great read alouds.
You are also going to enjoy our Elf on the Shelf word scramble.
This word search is a perfect educational Christmas activity for kids in upper elementary and middle school.

Elf on the Shelf Word Search
The popular Elf names can be found, horizontally, vertically, diagonally, frontwards, or backwards! Just to make it that much harder!
When the kids have completed the word search there are 2 elf images they can color in too.
Encourage the kids to write this December with our fun If I Were An Elf writing worksheet.
I have also added the answer sheet, some of the names are a little tricky to find!
Tip: I recommend either using a highlighter pen or circling around the letters. Do not cross the letters out if you have found a word, as it may be used in another word!
There are 16 popular Elf names to find:
