Elf on a Shelf arrival letter poem! So cute and perfect to use when your elf comes!

The First Arrival

Who has an Elf on a Shelf?

My kids have grown quite fond of our elf, Buddy, and I kinda don’t mind (now that we have a ton of elf ideas to do each day). They know that their elf is keeping an eye on them and is reporting back to Santa each night.

We are always reminding them that Buddy is watching and knows if they are being naughty or nice. Seems to work because they usually start behaving when we remind them of this each day.

Since you can’t copy the Real Elf on the Shelf story, my cousin’s hubby decided to write an Elf on the Shelf Arrival Letter POEM that tells the Elf on the Shelf story. It was so cute that I decided to make a printable of it for others to use as well.

It’s great for when you first introduce the Elf to your family or as a reminder when he comes each year.
