While the Elf on the Shelf welcome letter is what you need right now, don’t forget to print off the Elf on the Shelf goodbye letter as well for when your Elf says it’s time to go home.

This set of printables comes in two different formats. You can print out the signed letter and have your Elf leave it for the kids.
Or you can print out the welcome or goodbye letter with the signature spot left blank for you to fill in with your Elf’s name.
The greeting spot is also left blank so you can fill in your child(ren)’s name. This format makes the letter a little more personal.
Another reason to use this welcome and goodbye letter is it comes as a set, making it more official.
And you can print the free matching envelope! So cute and fun!
