One of our favorite Christmas traditions is our little Elf On the Shelf!

My kids get so excited about their Elf on the Shelf that they actually countdown to the day of arrival!

Every year, the kids can’t wait to bring him back to find out what goodies he brings and what mischief he gets into.

Plus, I love it when they find him every morning – it reminds me that Christmas magic is alive in my house.

Like most people, we move our Elf around the house to various spots.

It’s a fun way to keep kids of all ages engaged and excited!

We use a Christmas Elf Activity Kit to help come up with fun activities to do with our elf.

Each morning our kids find a new elf on the shelf note with their elf explaining what fun is in store for the day.

It helps to remind them that Saint Nick’s assistant observes the kids throughout the day.   

Also, it reminds them that the elf reports back to Santa what they are up to – good or bad.

The best part about using elf on the shelf printable notes is being able to use them to teach your child that rewards come from good behavior.

Free Printable Notes From Elf On The Shelf


To share in our Christmas magic, I made some FREE printable Elf on The Shelf Notes to share with our readers.

These elf on the shelf printable notes have some fun Christmas countdown activities you can do as a family or your kids can down on their own.

My kids look forward to baking Christmas cookies every year, so there is an elf note that announces what day that is.

Another elf note is a warning about behavior. 

Then there is a note of encouragement to be good in anticipation of Santa Claus coming soon.
