  • Project: day 25: get crafty/ Elf on the Shelf good-bye letter, a note from Santa, gift for dad
  • Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 1
  • Would I do it again? all were very fun, and a good note to end Christmas on!
  • What I would do differently: use a glue gun vs. a glue stick for the Guinness beer gift (hey it was late at night, and we were trying to get it done!). The girls absolutely loved their goodbye letters from Elfie and note from Santa (they wanted to keep them close all day!).
  • Items used:
  • Dad gift: Guinness, red pom-poms, googly eyes, pipe cleaners
  • Santa stationary (click on pinterest link above)
  • Elf on the Shelf good-bye letter: inspired from link above, but here’s what our said:

To the sweetest, most polite girls, Hayden and Morgan:

It’s Christmas Eve, and Santa is coming! You’ve both been such good girls this year and I have had so much fun coming to your house and seeing you every day.

I’ve got a special surprise for you, too. Santa said that I won’t need my magic tonight to get home because he is picking me up himself with his sleigh, and that if you want to, you can give me a goodbye hug. Just one big hug though – I still need a good dose of magic because as soon as Christmas is over I’m going to be back to work making toys in Santa’s workshop!

I can’t wait to see you two next year and how much you’ve grown!

Love,

Elfie

until ipinterest tomorrow!
