Elf on the Shelf Arrival Letter
This arrival letter will help you introduce your cute elf doll to your kids. You should fold this letter up and place it in an envelope, and at your latest holiday party (like Thanksgiving) – introduce your elf with his arrival letter. There are two versions of this letter in the pack, take a look at which one you will need for your event.
The “nice to meet you” version
The “nice to meet you” elf arrival letter is for a first time acquaintance – like many others this is probably the first time you are bringing this holiday tradition home. This is the perfect way to explain to your little ones why the scout elf is visiting and what they should do during his stay. Make it a sweet introduction, and have your elf sit in a bucket of chocolate kisses when the children meet him/her.
