Introducing: Elf Skillz!
Hey Karate Edge Parents & Family,
We told you we have a few surprises in store for you! Here is one that the elves behind the scenes have been working on diligently with our Skillz system!
Many parents enlist Elf on the Shelf to remind our kids that he/she’s keeping tabs on them and letting Santa know if they should be on the ‘naughty’ or ‘nice’ list…
However, this concept doesn’t always align with SKILLZ theories for child development and positive reinforcement. We hope that our version will be one that be both helpful, fun and developmentally stimulating for your children.
With that said, we’ve put together a cool concept to help utilize Elf on the Shelf as another support tool just like our SKILLZ system!
Here’s how it works:
- There are 8 Elf SKILLZ.
- Each night, have the Elf leave a challenge or message alternating through one skill, in order.
- Rotate through each one 3 times equals 24 days of Elf SKILLZ starting December 1st.
- For even more fun and better results, the child can earn 5 points each day they complete the challenge and then the Elf will leave a small gift once they receive 20 points. Gifts can include candy, money, art supplies, etc.
Here are the SKILLZ:

We hope the ELF SKILLZ inspires you!
Also, be sure to use the #elfskillz if you make posts on your social media pages to help build a worldwide trend for this creative concept! Feel free to share it with your friends!
