5 Super Cute Free Elf on the Shelf Arrival Letters

Like What You See? Tell Your Friends!

Are you doing the Elf on the Shelf this year? If so grab your free Elf on the Shelf arrival letter now.

This elf arrival letter is the perfect way to re-introduce the elf back into the home, and just create that extra bit of magic.

We have had the Elf on the Shelf visit now for about 7 years. They continue to come despite the fact my son finally realizes they aren’t real. (Yes and Santa, I was devastated). He was 10 at the time, so I knew I did well for that long. I think this is one of the perks of homeschooling!!

We had a long chat about the Elf on The Shelf and despite him knowing he is not real, he still wants the elves to visit. To see how and why we love the elves check out our Elf on the Shelf 101.

So this year, we are going all out… I say this every year, we absolutely love CHRISTMAS!!

Every year he receives an Elf on the Shelf arrival letter, and this year won’t be any different!

Elf Arrival Letter

So the day the Elf arrives, nearly always on December 1st, they bring an arrival letter. I have created four different templates that you can print out and use as you wish. You can add the child’s name to make it even more magical.

There are five different templates you can choose from (you will download all 5).

Two of them read:

As you have been so good this year, I have agreed that your favorite Elf can come and spend December with you again!

Remember the rules, if you touch your Elf they can’t fly back to Santa to tell him how well you are behaving.

When they come back every morning they have been told to find a much harder place to land. Last year you found them far too easily!

You are going to have such a wonderful Christmas this year, as long as you stay on Santa’s good list. You are currently at the top of the list!

Much love

Head Elf

The other three read:

I am back!

I’m so happy to be spending December with you and your wonderful family.

I missed you this year, but I have been keeping an eye on you from the North Pole.

Remember the rules, if you touch me I can’t fly back to Santa to tell him how good you are.

Where will I be landing when I come back every morning? Do you think you will be able to find me?

We are going to have so much fun, the other Elves are jealous I am spending it with you.

One of them has an image of a boy elf, one an image of a girl, and another one from more than one elf. So you can choose whichever is the best for your family.
