Free Printable Elf on the Shelf Goodbye Letter {Jesus Focused}

I was feeling a bit poetic tonight. I wrote up a free printable Elf on the Shelf Goodbye Letter that is Christ centered. If you need some last minute ideas for the next week to use with your Elf, check out my other Elf on the Shelf post that uses encouraging lessons and Bible verses to help your kids create good habits.

I tried my best to do lots of service projects and have our Elf on the Shelf be a good example to my kids this year.  You can grab some ideas from my free printables-one for each day of December until Christmas Eve!

Creating blessing bags for the homeless?  Motivating your children to do chores?  Sending hand-written thank you notes?  I have included lots of great ideas and I hope they will bless you and your family during the Christmas season.

  1. That’s beautiful – I love the rhyming!

  2. I just used this tonight! Thanks so much. Perfect way for our elf to say goodbye.

  3. I just wanted to stop by and thank you as I did an adaptation of this as a permanent ‘so long’ poem for my bonus (aka step) daughter’s Elf on the Shelf. I am secular, but her mom is not, so we did tie in the Jesus reference. If it is okay with you, I’d like to post it on my blog and link back to yours as the inspiration since you should get original credit for it.

    Thanks again,

  4. I love this, but want to add to it a bit to fit my daughter’s needs. Is this editable, or can you email me an editable version please?

  5. I love this! Thank you for creating something that really focuses attention on the true promise of Christmas!
