Need some good habits instilled in your kids this time of year? These Elf on the Shelf printables I made will help you tired mommas who want to keep Christ in Christmas but also include that silly elf as well.
I made 23 days of Elf on the Shelf printable cards for you guys (PLUS A GOODBYE LETTER) to download for free. There are enough printables to start on December 1st and go all the way to Christmas Eve using the Elf on the Shelf Good-Bye letter.
I had seen several of my girlfriends on Facebook wondering why the Elf on the Shelf‘ only came and did naughty things in the house. It got me thinking…and I agreed! While it’s fun to see the Elf do silly things, I think that this is a GREAT opportunity for us to teach our kiddos about responsibilities and good habits. It does hurt that it’s around Christmas time and they all can’t wait to see what Santa will bring them. I included a Bible Verse that goes along with several of the cards that will be a good reminder as to the REAL reason these lessons are important. It’s not all about presents…honoring the Lord is number one in our house! There are many printables with activities you can do as well. Feel free to add your Elf in on these. For example, on the ‘clean the car’ note, have your Elf holding the windex and waiting in the car!
