We are getting ready for our "Elfy" to come so I thought I'd re-post this from last year. It's already fun to look back at the girls' handwriting from a year ago. The link last year wasn't exactly right but with Jeff's help, all of the glitches should be worked out. Have fun and Merry Christmas!
It's that time....time for a special letter to go to the Jolly Old Saint and all of his Elves in the North Pole!
This is the first year that the twins remember a bit of the magic from last year and are aware of the concept of Santa and his elves. So far, so fun! They loved "writing" a letter to Santa.
After their letters were done, we put them in an envelope and made sure to attach two Santa stamps (one stamp will only get the letter half way there, you know).
Soon this little guy will appear with a very important letter from Santa himself! His job, to help Santa with his list of good boys and girls. He is kind of a mix between the Elf on The Shelf and The Elf Magic Elves and my own imagination. I have found so many great ideas of what to do with our Elf on Pinterest.
We know it's from Santa, it even has a "seal of excellence" on the back...and says, "Santa Express" on the front. It must be pretty important! Here's what the letter says:
And who are these three little elves going to?
The year the twins were born, three of my siblings had babies too...so there's a group of five (I call them the Fantastic Five) cousins all the same age. All of the cousins will meet their magic elves soon!
I had such a great time creating this for my family, I thought it would be fun to share it with you! I'll list all of my sources and then all you will need to do is click on the pictures below to get a PDF version of all the printables.
- I found our elves HERE (the prices were awesome and I LOVE the dolls...they are a great size and have a vintage feel and wired bodies so you can pose them, etc. and I literally had them two days after I ordered them).
- The gold seals I found at Office Max...they were the perfect touch to make the letter from Santa look official. They were over by the stationary...I'm assuming they were for awards, certificates, etc.
- I have created labels to and from Santa, official stamps from the North Pole, a blank letter head from Santa (in case you have something specific you'd like to write), the official letter from Santa about his special elf, and a guided letter to Santa.
