How to use the Elf on the Shelf Goodbye Letter
Your kids have interacted with their elf for 25 days, so it can be hard for them to wake up on Christmas Day without seeing their elf.
On Christmas Eve after the kids have gone to bed, leave out this letter for the kids to read from their friend the elf.
It’s your elf’s way of bidding his final fond farewell to your children.
You might even have your Elf on the Shelf leave the good bye letter out with a plate of cookies near the Christmas tree for one last bit of Christmas magic from your Christmas elf.
