You probably know by now that we are big fans of our Elf on the Shelf and look forward to our elves visiting each year.

Elf on the Shelf Notes
Today I’m making your life easier by sharing 24 FREE Elf on the Shelf notes printable cards!
Be sure to print our FREE Elf on the Shelf goodbye letter for when your elf has to go back to the North Pole!
There’s 24 different elf notes, which is one card per day in the month of December through Christmas Eve!
Each card features a cute little note written by your elf to your kids.
Some of the free printables encourage your kids to do an activity or are reminders to do something.
Other cards can be placed with a treat or activity for the kids to do that day, or near small gifts for the kiddos from your elf.

How Do I Use These?
These Elf on the Shelf notes should be placed with your elf at night for the kids to find in the morning.
Most cards can be set next to the elf in a fun place without doing anything else.
If your elf likes to hide like ours, you can also place the note next to your hidden elf.
Talk about easy!
If your kids need a reminder to stay on Santa’s nice list, print our FREE Elf on the Shelf bad behavior letter (or our good behavior letter too)!
Some cards might need something to be placed with the elf, like some cookies from Mrs. Santa Claus or some paper and pencils to write a letter to Santa.
The great thing about these notes is that there are 24 of them.
That means there’s one card for every day that the elf will be at your house this holiday season, from Dec. 1st – Dec. 24th.
This makes your job so much easier… no more struggling with what to do with the elf each night!
