Oh, the joys (and pains) of the Elf on the Shelf! I love our elves. I love the excitement they bring into our home, the magical touch they add to the holiday season, and the funny antics they get themselves into…
However, some days it can be challenging trying to keep this tradition fresh and creative. So here are some FREE Elf on the Shelf printables to help keep your elf on track!
Freebie Number One: Elf on the Shelf Countdown Cards (Download here.)
Perfect for counting down until Christmas. All you do is print and cut out. I created all 26 countdown cards. You can use one each day or once a holiday season. Your choice!
Our elf is a big fan of these…
Freebie Number Two: Elf on the Shelf Note Cards (Download here.)
Our elf likes to leave behind little notes explaining his shenanigans. This is a great way to add funny details to each night’s story, or to remind your little ones to behave.
Here are a few of our notes in action:
Freebie Number Three: Elf on the Shelf Planning Calendar (Download here.)
My best tool! The Elf on the Shelf can be a stress-free experience, if you plan ahead. I created this calendar back in July and planned everything I needed for our elves ahead of time.
Every night I look at the calendar, grab what I need, and it takes less than 5-minutes to move our elf.
I hope these tools make your life a little bit easier, and allow you a little bit of “me” time this holiday season.
