First, print your free Elf on the Shelf printables including the emoji faces and emoji Christmas song.
Start the Elf on the Shelf Emoji idea by cutting out the emoji faces and giving your elf an emoji face. YOu can use tape to get it to stick to his/her face.
Place the Elf on the Shelf in a location where it can be easily spotted by your children. Consider a spot that’s central to your family’s daily activities but also adds an element of surprise. The Christmas tree, mantle, or shelf are popular choices.

On the designated morning, reveal the Elf on the Shelf with its new emoji face and the note containing the emoji Christmas song. Encourage your children to find the elf and discover the musical surprise it has prepared.

What is Elf on the Shelf?
Elf on the Shelf is a Christmas Tradition. The tradition has a book and an 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, that the Elf is not touched 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.
