Don’t you just love The Elf On The Shelf? I don’t even have kids and I love the story and the premise! I need to get The Elf On The Shelf for me and Charlie! Maybe next year because it’s a little late in the season to start now!
Last year, Tiffany did a post called Sally Snowflake: 20 Things To Do With The Elf On The Shelf and we posted a picture of 42 Things to do with your Elf on the Shelf within that post. But, the photo, in it’s small format, was hard to read and when you printed it, it was even worse (I’ve since deleted it)!
My sister in Yuma, Dawn, called me to say that she printed it and it was woefully unsatisfactory and couldn’t I create a printable one?
Well, at the time (last year), I didn’t know how to create a printable document that we could add to our blog. I’m happy to report that I’ve learned many things this year and one of them is how to create printable documents for the blog!
So, while this list was actually launched last year, here it is again, with a FREE printable version attached to the link at the bottom of the post.
