Let’s take a minute and chat. Are you sitting down. Perhaps with a nice beverage beside you? Take a sip and let me tell you about how you can get out of your Elf moving responsibilities.
It’s been a long road. I mean since the first day your Elf arrived, you were already wondering when was going to be the last day you moved your elf – right?
What age should you stop the Elf on the Shelf? Honestly, Elf on the Shelf can be used with preschoolers and with older kids. Elf tends to end around preteen years. I have been doing Elf on the Shelf for eleven years in our home. Over seven years on the blog and I often get asked, what do you do when your child is done with Elf on a Shelf? Well, though I haven’t come to that problem in our home, but I have come to a solution. The Elf on the Shelf exit strategy is…
ELF ON THE SHELF RETIREMENT LETTER
Once you are ready to stop the Christmas tradition, gently let your son or daughter know your Elf has to move on. This Elf on the Shelf Letter kindly shares with your child what a great job they have been doing. They are giving a congratulations being assigned to the nice list and no longer need a Scout Elf visiting their home. In fact, there are new families who are struggling that need a visit from their family elf.
This good-bye Elf on the Shelf letter ( passing you the tissues) retires Elf form your families scout elf responsibilities. The letter has a male and female version (so you can choose the most fitting Elf letter for your home.)
Use this letter at the end of the Elf season, perhaps close to New Year’s Eve when your Elf returns to the North Pole.
Take a look at these Good-bye Elf on the Shelf Ideas. You can pair these Last Night of Elf on the Shelf Ideas with this Good-bye printable Retirement Letter.

Start A New Christmas Tradition
It’s okay to move on from Elf. Even if your child still believes in the magic of the season, there are other ways to create Family Traditions for Christmas in your home.
Family Christmas Traditions
Take a look at these 25+ Christmas Traditions to Start Now (Pin to Pinterest). Some of my favorites are un-wrapping a Christmas book to read each day in December. No need to buy new books, just use some of those you have or borrow from the library. I also love the tree skirt hand print craft. You have to see it for yourself!
It is absolutely alright to go back to the reason for the season. The Birth of Christ. Take a look at these 25 Homemade Advent Calendars. (Pin to Pinterest) You can have the tradition of making a new Christmas Advent Calendar every year! See our Non-Candy Advent Calendar Filler Ideas.
Elf on the Shelf Postcards
If you child still believes in the magic of Christmas, they can still get mail from their Elf on the Shelf. These Elf Postcards (Pin to Pinterest) can be sent for the first day of school, or when Elf travels. Have your elf send a Elf on the Shelf Postcard from the Beach or from the North Pole.
My goal is to make the End to Elf on the Shelf, saying good-bye, hello, or looking for ideas, easy for you!
