What is an Elf on the Shelf Bad Behavior Letter?
If you notice that your child did something that wasn’t good, then you can send them an Elf on the Shelf naughty letter.
It’s an official warning signed by Santa himself that comes straight from the North Pole, reminding your child that they can do better.
Here’s what’s included for you to fill out in the blank spaces–
- Your child’s name
- a description of the bad behavior (hitting your sister, arguing with mom, etc)
- how to fix the offenses (keeping your hands to yourself, doing what you’re asked to do by your parents, etc.)
- the name of your elf (since they are the ones that “witnessed” the bad behavior)
I like to think of this elf letter as more of a warning, rather than a “bad letter.”
