This elf arrival letter is super cute and talks about how the elf may get into mischief! It talks about how Santa has left the elf with the child to encourage the child to teach the elf how to be good. This encourages the child to show kindness to others and supports good behaviour. It also communicates to the child that their good behaviour throughout the year has been recognised. As with the previous elf arrival letter I have made a girl elf arrival letter and a boy elf arrival letter especially for your elves!
