The Elf is nearly here! Our Elves (we have a girl and a boy) are preparing for their arrival on MONDAY!!!!
I have written before about some different ways to Welcome Your Elf.
However they arrive, they will need a way of introducing themselves and the concept!
FOR FIRST TIMERS
Using the Elf and Book set:
- I suggest reading the book to the children the night before the Elf arrives at your house! This will help introduce the character, story and concept. By giving your children a “heads up” not only will they understand who the elf is and why they are in your house but it also builds excitement and dispells fear!
- Print the letter and have it ready to arrive with your elf. By reading the letter the concept is reinforced and the child begins to make a connection between Santa and his special helper, your Elf!
WE HAVE DONE THIS BEFORE!
If you have had a visiting Elf before (like us!) go straight to step 2! This will give them a reminder about the Elf and you can then enjoy the story at a later time!
We have two versions of the ELF INTRODUCTION LETTER for you!
The first is for A CHILD (just one child participating)
The second is for CHILDREN (this is suitable for families or a class)
Print, Share and ENJOY!
