The excitement of the Christmas season can be challenging on young children. There is the hustle and bustle of activities and often children are out of their normal routine. Bad behavior can be inevitable and we do not always set them up with a positive atmosphere for not failing.
Instead of punishing your children encourage them with an Elf on the Shelf behavior note. There are many ways to do this. A small warning first. Later, if needed, your Elf friend can always bring an Elf on the Shelf on strike sign. You also can bring forth an Elf on the Shelf behavior letter template.
Elf on the Shelf Bad Behavior Letter
If you have a Toy Story Mr. Potato head, this is an easy way for Elf on the Shelf to encourage good behavior.
- The Elf on the Shelf Doll
- Mr. Potato Head Ears
- Pen or Marker
- Optional: Toy Story Characters
- Optional: Print clip art ears off Google
Write our child a behavior letter from Elf on the Shelf. For this letter, we saw bad behavior and wrote the following message.
It seemed like you had a hard time listening yesterday so I brought you some extra ears to help you today! Remember Santa loves good listeners. Good luck.
This is a very gentle reminder to ask your child to bring forth examples of good behavior. It is not punishing or condemning. Consider adding a positive not like “I like the way you…” to encourage good listening.

What is Elf on the Shelf?
Elf on the Shelf is a Christmas Tradition. The tradition has a book and a elf doll. The book is poetic and in rhyme sharing the purpose of the Elf’s visits. The Elf visits each Thanksgiving. He/She goes and returns from the North Pole each evening. Every morning he can be found in a new location in the house. The Elf has been found in the refrigerator, fishing in the toilet, writing messages on the mirror or hanging from the lights. It is VERY IMPORTANT, the Elf is not touch each evening or his Christmas magic will be lost! Each family is able to name their special elf. The elves return to their home (Santa’s North Pole Work shop) every Christmas Eve. An Elf’s Story can also be found on DVD.
