  3. Cross country skiing pulling sleds with toys.  The elf who can carry the most toys across the finish line gets to wear the high elf hat.
  4. Igloo building.  The elves try to make new and unique shapes while maintaining the strength of the buildings.
  5. Snow ball fights between departments.  Snowballs are dyed green and blue.  The team with the most direct hits on a pole gets a pizza evening.

  7. Dog sled races.  Fastest, cutest and furthest running teams receive special treats
  8. Donut tossing.  The elves throw donuts onto a twig to see who can get the most through the donut hole.
  9. Snow shoeing around  Claus park.
