Elf on the Shelf Letter to Older Kids
Are your older kids involved in Elf on the Shelf. As the kids got older and still wanted visits from Elf, ideas became complicated. For one, sometimes I was in bed before the kids. That meant, either Elf did not move, or he/she moved when they were at school.
This letter fully explains why Elf might move at different times of the day.
Maybe you knew it, or maybe not,
But I have been back awhile and watching you a lot.
Now that you’re older and staying up late,
Some of my trips to Santa, may have to wait.
I may travel at night, when you’re snuggled in tight.
I may travel when you’re in school, and out of my sight.
So please be patient when you’re looking for me,
Here or there we will have lots of Elf fun, you will see!

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.
