Elf on the Shelf allows kids to experience the magic of Christmas with a bit of mysterious play.

Not to mention, the Elf on the Shelf can be a playful reminder for your children to behave during the holiday season!

So if you haven’t started this fun Christmas tradition, then try it out this year, you won’t be disappointed!

Free Printable Elf On The Shelf Arrival Letter

To help you get started, I have made an Elf on the Shelf Letter From Santa (free download) for all of my readers!

It can be used as an introduction if it is your child’s first year using the Elf On The Shelf.

It provides some information about the elf from Santa, so kids know what to expect!

Also, this is a letter that can be printed and given to the kids year after year, when their elf returns from their journey from the North Pole.

When To Start The Elf On The Shelf Arrival Letter

There is no right or wrong time to introduce or bring back your Elf on the Shelf.

Some families like to start Thanksgiving night and others tend to wait until December 1st.

Do whatever works for you and your family.

I like to think ahead and plan out our Elf activities each year.

I have made the Santa’s Helper Christmas Planner to help me plan out all my family’s holiday festivities.
