Elf SKILLZ #1 – Manners

Utilizing ‘Elf of the Shelf’ to support child development in positive ways

Our first Elf SKILLZ is MANNERS. Having good manners is showing good behavior by being courteous and mindful of others.

To help develop good manners, our Elf SKILLZ challenges today are 1- Watch what you say, 2 – Good table manners, and 3 – Being respectful.

CHALLENGE 1 – Watch what you say!

Having manners is showing good behavior, that includes what you say. Some words may seem funny but they are not good ways to behave around others, even in your own home around your family. Do you have manners if…

  • You say ‘please’ and ‘thank you?’
  • You say bathroom words? 
  • You say ‘I’m sorry’ when you make a mistake? 
  • You say ‘I don’t care’ when you make a mistake?

Today I challenge you to watch what you say!

CHALLENGE 2 – Having good table manners!

When you have good table manners, then eating together with friends and family is more enjoyable!Do you have table manners if…

  • You chew with your mouth closed?
  • You complain about the food on your plate?
  • You have fun conversation with your company?
  • You keep getting up from your chair?

Today I challenge you to have good table manners. Watch how much fun eating is when you follow this skill!

CHALLENGE 3 – Be respectful!

Having manners includes being respectful, which means you care about other people’s feelings and needs. When you show people you care, then everyone is happier. Let’s try a game to see if you know how to be respectful! Are you respectful if…

  • Your parents ask you to be quite while they are watching a movie so you play quietly?
  • You bother your parents while they are on the phone? 
  • You offer to help someone when they need help? 
  • You ignore helping others because you are too tired to help? 

Today I challenge you to be respectful. Be sure to listen to your parents and offer to help others if they ask!
