How Your Elf Should Set Up the Elf Race Car Scene

1. Gather up some toy cars from the toy pile.  Also find a figure – could be a person (Playmobil, LEGO, etc) or a character.

2. For the flag: Print our page of free printable checkered flags.  These hold up best on card stock, but regular printer paper should work fine.  Note: these printables are for personal use only. Cut out the size flag you would like to use.

3. Tape the flag to a toothpick.

4. Place the toothpick in the figure’s hand (or tape it if it won’t stay on its own).

5. Line up cars in a staggered line, facing the checkered flag.

6. Elf picks a car to race on!

That’s it! May the fastest car win!
