25 Free Elf on the Shelf Printables – Easy Elf on the Shelf Ideas

Free Elf on the Shelf printables are a total life-saver this time of year. The Elf on the Shelf is all fun and games until you can’t seem to figure out another way to set him up (and setting him up climbing the Christmas tree, again, is going to bore your kids).

Setting up an elaborate scene is

a) exhausting

b) can get expensive (I mean who has money to continue to waste good food and toiletries? Toilet paper isn’t cheap!)

But it doesn’t have to be either of those things. Today, I have over 25 FREE, yes, FREE printables for your elf on the shelf. There’s no need for you to waste your time trying to come up with a creative idea, I’ve got 25+ right here for you.

There are enough free elf printables for your elf’s entire stay (if they start December 1st that is). It includes letters for your elf’s arrival and even a goodbye letter for your elf’s departure!

Unfortunately, some of the freebies that I originally had are no longer free. Because of this, I had to remove them from my post. But unfortunately, Pins were already in the Pinterest atmosphere. I know how frustrating that is, sorry about that!
