Printable Elf Goodbye Letter

When they arrive they leave we have an elf on the shelf arrival letter explaining their visit, so it makes perfect sense to have an Elf on the Shelf departure letter when they leave.

I have included 2 Elf on the Shelf goodbye letters, including one letter from multiple elves. But they have the same message on:

Thank you so much for letting me stay with you this year.

Unfortunately, it is time for me to leave, but I have had so much fun.

I can’t wait to see you again next year, and I know you will be really good until then.

We leave this goodbye letter next to the Christmas stocking, to explain what is happening. But please remember, to leave this for Christmas Day morning!

You don’t want the children looking around the house for the elves and them not being there.

This Elf on the Shelf goodbye letter can be used if like us you have multiple elves. I absolutely love the little P.S on this one that reads:

P.S We put a big red X sticker on your roof so we can easily find you next year.
