Elf on a Shelf: Santa Sets the Scene (introductory letter)

Dear Kylie and Harper,

Good morning, girls! As you have probably noticed, I have left a very special friend with you. He is one of the many elves from my Toy Workshop, and I have asked him to help keep an eye on both of you while I work to put the finishing touches on all the toys before my big night. Every day between now and Christmas Eve, your elf will be keeping an eye on you from the moment you wake each morning until the time you are tucked into bed and asleep for the night.  Then, as you are sleeping each night, he will deliver your “Naughty-Nice” report to me here at the North Pole and then hurry back to your house so he’s there when you wake up the next morning.

Right after reading this letter, I need you to carefully choose a name for the little fella because all elves are just called “elf” until they are assigned to their very special shelf. Only the best elves are chosen for this job, and since he will be your own “Elf on the Shelf” for every Christmas from now on, it is very important that you pick a good name for him.


  1. He is magical and cannot be touched or his magic will fade and he will not be able to return to the North Pole.
  2. He does get hungry and really likes crackers and water.
  3. He is a tricky elf who likes to play around and act silly.
  4. He cannot talk to you because his number one job is listening to everything you say and watching everything you do so that I know everything needed for my official naughty & nice list.

Finally, since all the sudden having an elf in your house watching your every move may seem a little weird, I have left you a book all about your new elf that will definitely help you get used to him.

I love you both, and I believe you girls will have many more reports of being nice than you will for being naughty.

Sincerely with love,

A. Santa Cause
