Aussie Inspired Elf on the Shelf Ideas

In preparation for Scout Elf Return Week the Scout Elves have picked some of their favourite Aussie inspired Elf on the Shelf ideas that will have your family smiling. Just leave out the materials for any of the ideas below, and watch your elf recreate the fun!

Ready? Let’s go!

Life’s a beach


Australia has some of the best beaches in the world, so it is so surprise that Scout Elves love to soak up Australian beaches when they return down under. To recreate an iconic summer setting, your Scout Elf needs some brown sugar or coconut, a face washer or scrap of material and some elf-sized glasses (find at craft stores)

Festive fruit fun!


Scout Elves love fruit – nature’s sweet treat! They especially love yummy, fresh fruit when spending time in the Australian weather! Your Scout Elf can easily create a festive fruit tower filled with plenty of Aussie treats including mangos, strawberries, grapes and peaches! All they need is a foam cone (from a craft store), toothpicks and fruit from the fridge!

Breakfast fit for an Elf


Scout Elves love enjoying a good North Pole Breakfast™. For an Australian twist your elf can whip up vegemite on toast and an ice-cold milo. Make sure you leave out the vegemite jar, the bread, milk and milo!

Christmas time camping


Your Scout Elf can take a well-deserved break from seasonal duties with a summer campout! Your elf can easily create an outdoor oasis with this tent printable, small twigs, material scraps, cellophane (orange or yellow) and mini marshmallows. Make sure it’s not a fire ban day!
