It’s hard to believe that in just a few days, Christmas will be here.  As you make final preparations this week, don’t forget to take time to say goodbye to Elf on the Shelf.  By now your children (and you 🙂 ) have formed a special bond with your elf, making it especially difficult to bid farewell for eleven months.

With the special tradition that it is, many wonder just how to say goodbye to Elf on the Shelf.  These ideas will help!

1.  Take time on Christmas Eve to read “The Elf on the Shelf” with your children and make sure your elf is in the room.  They always enjoy seeing families honor their special tradition, especially when it means snuggling up with a good book!

2.  Have your children make something special that your elf can take with him or her as a keepsake for the season.  Our son made our elf, Marco, his very own teeny tiny rainbow loom bracelet at the start of the season.  Seeing Marco with that bracelet made him SO happy and he even wrote him a note this last week telling our elf how happy it made him to see him wear it every day.

Be creative and honestly – anything goes.  Whatever means a lot to your children will mean a lot to your elf.

3.  Write a letter to your Elf on the Shelf.  Our children write their own to him expressing their love for him and sharing their favorite places he hid this year.

4.  Make your elf a little bag of cookies to take with him.   After all, Santa will be there in just a few short hours, but if elf magic can get him back and forth to the North Pole each night – well, there has to be magic that allows elves to haul a treat back with them.

5.  End your Christmas Eve by leaving a letter for Santa with some milk and cookies and then take a few minutes to say goodbye to your elf.  We record what each of our children say to him to have as a keepsake not only for ourselves but for our children.

Plus, when your kiddos miss their elf after Christmas, they can look back at the photos and videos from the season.
