  1. Using a piece of paper, your Scout Elf will print out The Elf on the Shelf® Nice-O-Meter template.
  2. Using a pair of scissors, your elf will cut out a small arrow that will fit on top of the Nice-O-Meter.
  3. After gluing the meter template to a small box, your elf will use a brass fastener to attach the arrow to the template and box. The fastener will pierce through the base of arrow and through the box, exactly where the black dot appears on the Nice-O-Meter template.
  4. Check back each day to see if your elf has updated your Nice-O-Meter!
