Find out how your school can take part in Elf Day, including teaching resources and activity packs for teaching children about dementia. 

Three children dressed as Elves for Elf Day with their school teacher

Elf Day isn’t just about over-the-top Christmas fun (though the more of it the better!). It is also a great opportunity to teach your school or youth group more about dementia.

Follow the lesson plan and activity pack below to teach the five key messages about dementia and to ask your young elves to commit to an ‘elf-less’ act to take on social action in your community.

By watching the animation and completing the pack, your young elves will have become Dementia Friends. Remember to get your Dementia Friends badges and Elf Day action cards by completing our survey.
