Elf On The Shelf Goodbye Letter

Printable Elf On The Shelf Goodbye Letter

The last few weeks have been tons of fun!

You’ve made my job easy, and I am sad it is done. 

Tonight I go back to give my report. 

As Santa’s list is ready to sort. 

You’ve been good this year and I’m happy to say

Tomorrow presents will arrive for Christmas Day!

For today only, you can pick me up and give me a hug

Be gentle since I’m fragile, but don’t hesitate to hold me snug. 

Our time together has come to an end

Back to the North Pole your Elf you must send. 

Next year will arrive in the blink of an eye. 

Just watch for the magic & reindeer in the sky!
