Printable Elf on the Shelf Notes & Jokes
Using our notes and jokes is so easy! All you need is a printer and your scissors, and you’re ready to rock! Here are some of the cute ideas you’ll find:
Special Treat Card
The card reads, “Mrs. Claus sent a special treat from the North Pole. It was so good; I ate one whole.”
Make some homemade cookies or pull out the bag of cookies from the grocery store—we won’t tell!
If you’re looking for some easy homemade cookies, check out our Eggnog Snickerdoodle Cookies or Iced Oatmeal Cookies. Both are perfect for Christmastime!
Your Elf can encourage the kids to clean! This card reads, “Christmas is coming, and this place is a mess. If you help clean it up, I’ll be very impressed.” This is a great way to get the kids involved with cleaning and Christmas prep without a lot of fuss.
If you need more help with the kids managing their chores around the house, check out our printable chore charts and magnetic chore chart.
Scavenger Hunt Card
The elf has hidden 10 candy canes in your home. Can you find them all?
This card is such a fun way to get kids excited for the Christmas season. After they find all the candy canes, they can enjoy them, crush them up and add them to some vanilla ice cream, bake them into cookies, or hang them on the tree.
If your kids love scavenger hunts, don’t miss our Christmas Light Scavenger Hunt!
Good Deeds Card
You may want to print this card out for your Elf on the Shelf to use a few times; you can never do too many good deeds, especially during the Christmas season.
If you need some inspiration, we have a list of 25 Simple Acts of Kindness to fill the entire December calendar leading up to Christmas.
Everyone can use an extra hug or two around the holidays!
Good Helper Card
Here’s another card for your Elf to encourage good habits by asking the kids to pick up 10 things that don’t belong to them.
Decorate the Tree Card
Elves love festive trees! Encourage the kids to help decorate the family Christmas tree or one of their own! We’ve done a LEGO tree in the past, or you can fill a tree with homemade ornaments like these kid-made Cupcake Ornaments, Scrabble Tile Ornaments, or our cute Grinch Ornaments.
Favorite Book Card
This card reads, “I found your favorite book. Will you read it with me?” Having your children read books aloud to their elves is a creative way to practice reading skills!
