Starting taekwondo as an adult sounded intimidating until I stepped into my first class! Miss Kaari is a talented professional with amazing skills and truly committed to teaching her students. The community of people at the school is top notch! Looking forward to my journey to black belt!

Elf SKILLZ


Hey Parents,

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 align with SKILLZ theories for child development as we believe
threats, coercion, and punishments do more harm for behavior modifications, particularly
during COVID.

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 instructors!

Here’s how it works:
1. There are 8 Elf SKILLZ.
2. Each night, have the Elf leave a challenge or message alternating through one skill, in order.
3. Rotate through each one 3 times equals 24 days of Elf SKILLZ starting December 1 st
4. 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:
1. Manners
2. Kindness
3. Bravery
4. Creativity
5. Self-Control
6. Loving
7. Healthiness
8. Cooperation

I hope the ELF SKILLZ inspires you to use this concept is a more positive and productive manner!
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, and check out www.elfskillz.com for updates. Feel
