Elf on the Shelf Poem

Who has an Elf on the Shelf?

I had never heard about it until this year, but let me tell you – my kids are loving it!

We didn’t end up getting the “typical” Elf on the Shelf that you find at Target, but instead one that was purchased from Home Goods. This is what he looks like:

{We named him Happy and yesterday he was hanging from the track lighting in the kitchen!}

Since you can’t copy the Real Elf on the Shelf story, my cousin’s hubby decided to write an Elf on the Shelf POEM {thanks, Rob!}.

I turned it into a printable that I hope you all you can use and enjoy.

And if you don’t have the time to get an Elf o the Shelf… no worries!

You can use my Naughty or Nice List Printable found HERE.

We are doing that as well and the kids have been on their BEST  BEHAVIOR! :)

ENJOY!

    I LOVE the Elf poem! I had never heard of him until this year, too. But the doll is a little creepy. :) I need to find a normal looking elf and then I can use this poem. lol Thanks a lot!

    Forgive me but there’s a typo: “Then each night to the NoRth Pole via the airport.” (i.e., the R is missing). It’s no big deal to me (I have to re-type anyway because of the Australian spelling of a few words), but I thought you might like to know.

    Thanks so much for the inspiration. I’m going to use the poem as a starting off point for mine.

    Cheers,
    Cate

    I love this poem!!! I can’t afford to buy the original elf on the shelf but found a really cute one at a craft store. This poem is just too cute and much better than the original version in my eyes! Thank you soo much for sharing it!

    This is great!!!. I was a little reluctant to purchase the original Elf on the Shelf. I wasnt sure if my two year old would grasp the concept…I know kids are a lot smarter then we think ..lol SO I Found an adorable elf at The Dollar Tree, yup for only 1$. I hide the elf, printed the poem out and pretended Santa had just sent an email. After we had read the poem we went hunting for the elf…she was so excited when we found him. Thank you again!

    Thank you! I bought a less creepy elf at Costco, but now found out you can’t buy just the book anywhere! This is perfect!

    I love your poem with border. The R in North was left out. Can you please fix it so I can print it?
    Thanks

    Thanks for sharing! I’ve really been struggling with the whole “elf” idea. Everyone has theirs doing things naughty, I really don’t like that at all. I think too often we take the “real” meaning of Christmas out and feel it with things that aren’t at all what Christmas is about. Our elf will be teaching our kids about the real meaning of Christmas and reporting back to Santa about their behavior while also bringing messages of Christ back to the kids. The whole idea is really warming up to me now. I dig the poem!!!
