It’s almost time again for our elves from the North Pole to arrive. I’m already seeing Elf on the Shelf clothes, and pets, and clothes for pets in retail stores!! Since I’m so gung-ho about this Christmas tradition, I thought I’d put together three FREE Elf on the Shelf printables I have made for easy access. One is a first day poem, another is a poem to use if your child has had a bad day, and the last printable is a 30-day cheat sheet you can print, fold and keep in your purse.
First Day Poem
This is a poem you can print for when your elf arrives. Place it next to the elf with a little treat.
Oh how I missed you;
It’s great to be back!
I made you some treats,
A sweet little snack.
I hope you like it
It’s one of my faves.
You better be good!
You better behave!

Bad Day Poem
Most kids have bad days; shoot…most adults have bad days! This poem is one you can print and place with your elf after one of those rough days.
Yesterday was tough, you had a bad day!
I should have left, but decided to stay.
Please listen to Mommy and Daddy as well.
Be a good kid and your ELF will not tell.
Santa expects the best from us all.
Spread good acts of kindness, none are too small.
Next time this happens, I will not appear.
Today’s a fresh start. Understand me, my dear?

Next, I made this little cheat sheet ahead of time this year primarily for myself. Now that we have a new baby in the house and I’m really busy, I thought I’d have 30 days of idea on hand in case I need some inspiration.

Lastly, make your own Elf luggage with these free printable poems and luggage stickers. Use these if you are traveling with your elf, or for the first day or last day.

I hope you can use these!
In case you missed it, here is a video montage of several ideas I have done over the years.
