Scout Elf Clubhouse


  • Shoebox
  • Wooden craft sticks
  • Hot glue gun
  • Markers
  • Decorations (lights, signs, fake trees, etc.)


  1. Your elf will hoist this tiny hideout into a bush or tree and hunker down to watch the day’s activities! You can help your elf out by picking a shoebox that they can use as the base of his or her tree house. The box will be set up on one of its long sides and the shoebox top will be used to create a roof that hangs down slightly over the top of shoebox hole.
  2. After your elf glues the roof onto the house, he or she will use wooden craft sticks to cover the box and create a railing in the front of the house for safety.
  3. Next, it’s time to decorate! Miniature lights, a sign or elf-sized blankets or pillows help your elf feel right at home.
