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.
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.
Check out all of our Elf on the Shelf leaving ideas, with a free yearbook cover you can print out.
We have created 2 different templates for you to print out and leave for the kids to find on Christmas Eve.

Elf Goodbye Letter
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.
If these free printables are not quite what you are looking for, these personalized download letters from Etsy are super cute.
You will receive all five of these elf goodbye letters so choose which one you prefer.
