Don't Eat CASHEW! Game

Long before Elf-on-a-shelf became popular, this Elf, named CASHEW, came to our house each December 1st and magically appeared in various places throughout the month.
When our girls grew up and married, CASHEW sent his Elf cousins to their homes as well.

PISTACHIO does his magical adventures at our daughter, Erin's.

MAC ADAMIA plays his mischief at Jamie's home.

AL MOND frolics up in NY at Jill's house each year. He has even followed them to their new home.

I caught CASHEW in some of his many antics and made a game inspired by a pin I saw on Pinterest.
As you can see, one never knows where CASHEW's whimsical wondering's will appear. Even Raider is not off-limits to his impish ways. We are planning on playing this with the M&M lovin' kids in our family. That is unless CASHEW gets into the M&M's first!

If you would like to make a game too, right click the photo and save to your computer.  I made the game in Microsoft Word.  I printed on card stock and trimmed to desired size.  I used a glue stick to attach the page to another colorful piece of card stock then went to Staple's to have it laminated.

Oh this is so cute. I love how all the elfs have nutty names. Years ago when my kids were younger I used to come up with a different game to play on Christmas morning. I haven't done that in years but it was always fun

We play this game too! Our version is called "Don't eat Pete!". Our game board is cardboard with hand drawn silly faces...and it's about 25 years old. I think you've inspired me to make a new board.

I agree with Ann...the nutty names are the best!!

This looks like a fun game, Lorraine, that the kids would love. Thanks for the idea. I also thought your chalkboard tray turned out beautifully. Have a great Christmas!

Oh-I love it, Lorraine. We always had elves but they were "invisible" and came out at night and did lots of fun stuff...but we never saw them- you were way ahead of your time-xo Diana

What a sweet idea - I can just see how the little ones (and big ones!) would love the elves and their antics.
