Ways to Engage Toddlers at Christmas

  • Brainstorm as a family to come up with as many ideas as you can! Put them all in a hat, and draw one name out. Leave it up to luck to find the perfect elf name for your new friend!
  • Pick something you and your family love—sports, gardening, movies, board games, cooking or any other hobby—and choose a fun elf name based on a favorite player, flower, film, song or food!
  • Scout Elves love all things Christmas, so maybe your new elf would love a holiday-inspired moniker! Have each family member share their favorite holiday treat, decoration or tradition, and see if these could inspire your new elf’s name.
