Free Elf on the Shelf Goodbye Letter To Print Out

Like What You See? Tell Your Friends!

The Elf on the Shelf is leaving to help Santa with his Christmas deliveries! But how do you tell kids? We’ve got an easy way – print our free Elf on the Shelf goodbye letter below.

We introduce the Elf on the Shelf in November first with our elf construction site, and then they come to stay with the North Pole Breakfast (as close to December as possible.)

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 goodbye letter when they leave.

We have created four different templates for you to print out and leave for the kids to find on Christmas Eve.

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.
