Free printable Elf on the Shelf prop inclusions
As I mentioned above, I will be updating the kit every year. Below I'll list everything that is included with the most current Elf kit. You'll also find some images on how I've used these printables so you're not stuck for ideas. If you'd like to know more about any idea, you can check it out in my list of Elf on the Shelf ideas.
Elf on the Shelf I'm Back! Sign
This is the perfect size for your Elf to hold onto. I attached mine to a pop stick and then sent him careening down a length of tinsel.
Good Morning, I Made You Some Breakfast Sign
You could use this sign to place with your children's actual breakfast. Our Elf poured cereal into the kid's shoes. I suppose he was trying to be helpful?!
Lemonade 25c Sign
This is a simple small sign that you could use for a lemonade stand. Our Elf was cheeky and was caught peeing in some miniature cups that he was trying to pass off as lemonade.
Elf on the Shelf Poop Sign
A cheeky Elf on the Shelf prop, this sign was stuck in a jar of poop. It was attached to a pop stick and the Elf “poop” were actually chocolate balls.
I Tried to Bring You Back a Snowman Sign
This particular sign was used with a melted snowman idea. Our Elf was sitting next to a bowl of water with the sign. Inside the bowl was what was left of the melted snowman – a carrot, googly eyes, buttons, and twigs.
It Was Cold Outside, Now I'm Warm + Toasty Sign
A sweet little pun, punch holes into a piece of toast to stick your Elf's arms and legs through. Then just place the printable sign next to them.
I Farted in Here, Wanna Smell? Sign
This antic is an easy one – pop your Elf into a jar or container then place the sign in with them. If you're container isn't clear then you could just put the sign next to or on top of it.
The Floor is Lava Sign
The floor is lava Elf antic is a popular one with the kids. I've seen many different versions. Our Elf was found hanging on the Christmas tree, with red lava tinsel below him. The sign was stuck to the tree.
Elf on the Shelf Twister Game
I love the Elf on the Shelf Twister idea. I created the game mat for elves to play. This is a great idea for multiple elves or playing with other dolls and toys.
Santa Hat Props
You could use these Santa hats for a range of different Elf activities. I cut mine out and stuck them to photographs I had around the house. Then our Elf drew on the faces of the people in the photos (with a dry-erase marker).
I came up with this little axe for our Elf to hold onto. He chopped a toilet paper snowman's head off with it and was sitting inside the rolls of toilet paper.
See Ya Next Year! Sign
You could use this printable Elf on the Shelf prop to compliment so many different Elf departure ideas. Our Elf sat on a sleigh with this sign (I placed it on a pop stick). Then all of my kid's toy cars were chasing the Elf out of the door.
Goodbye Editable Letter
The Goodbye letter is probably one of the best props in this Elf kit. It is editable so you can customize the name of the children and the name of the Elf too. Hang or set it with your Elf in whichever way you would like. Our Elf sat on the Christmas tree holding the letter that was also attached to the tree.
Tips for your free printable Elf on the Shelf props
Let's chat about some of the ways to help you with downloading and printing your Elf on the Shelf props.
You can use any type of paper you have around the house. For some of these I actually just used everyday copy paper. If you need one of your props to stand or it just needs some additional strength then it would be better to use a thicker paper/card.
The PDF comes in US Letter (8.5×11″) format however it is easy enough to print to A4 also. No matter which size you're printing to, I would suggest ensuring your print settings are set to ‘Actual Size' or scaled at 100%. If this is not selected then the props will print at a slightly different size. Some of the props such as the axe and the Santa hats were designed to suit an Elf's size.
The Goodbye letter is editable and is included within the document with all of the other printable Elf on the Shelf props. When you locate it, there will be two blue fields where you can type in the names you wish to use. Before editing, ensure you have saved the document to your computer (not just opened it in a web browser) and that you are using Adobe Reader. Using another PDF viewing software may cause problems. I find these are the most common reasons people run into trouble with editable PDF files.
