Elf Word Search – Find The Most Popular Elf Names

Like What You See? Tell Your Friends!

With this free printable Elf word search game, 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 search printables are an excellent homeschool activity for when the kids just need a break. They are educational, but more importantly, they are fun.

Word searches are one of the best educational games for improving vocabulary, enhancing cognitive skills, and fostering a love for learning in individuals of all ages.

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 Christmas 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.
