If you have the Elf on the Shelf visit you are going to need this Elf on the Shelf hat printable.
Why? Well if you are anything like us you struggle to know what Elf on the Shelf activities to do every day, and their antics can be really expensive!
Take it from someone who knows! We have had the elf on the shelf visit now for about 9 years, and they will continue to come forever!
They are part of our tradition now, and they spend most of December with us!
These Elf On The Shelf hat printables are probably the best trick we have done, and it was completely free! Download your free hat printables at the end of this post.

Elf Hat Printable
The printout will have 8 red elf on the shelf hats and 4 green ones. As with all of our printables, they print out better on cardstock (otherwise they are a little flimsy).
These are definitely less messy than marker pens (we have tried it all trust me!)
Add the elf hats to as many of your family photos as you can and leave the elf hiding there for the kids to find in the morning.
You can just add the hats to the kid’s photos, or maybe as we did, give the kids the green hat so they stand out. But you can choose what works best.

However, I do promise the kids are absolutely going to love this one!
In fact, one year we decided to spray paint the window, it was great fun. But definitely more clear up than the elf hats!
