These Elf on the Shelf printable progress reports are a cute and quick way to encourage your kids over the holidays.
It’s December 1st and that means the elf is back! My kids have been counting down the days until our elf Ginger returned. I resisted getting an elf on the shelf for years, and finally gave in two or three years ago. I don’t regret it. This silly little tradition brings my kids so much joy, and it’s fun to come up with new and creative ways to make them laugh.
With two teenagers, I appreciate the joy of childhood with my youngest two kids more. I realize now how quickly these years fly by, and I want to soak up every last big of childhood magic that I can while I have the chance.
These Elf on the Shelf printable progress reports will be a big hit this year. It’s great for kids to get feedback on good behavior and constructive criticism for ways to improve. And they won’t argue when it comes from the elf who reports to Santa!
Elf on the Shelf Printable Progress Report Supplies
I used printables from an Etsy shop called Ephemoire. These progress reports and behavior reports are already Elf sized, so all you have to do is cut them out! I added a little “extra” by trimming red cardstock (I used decorative edges on some of them) as a backdrop. I just had to cut out the letter and use my tape runner to attach the letter to the backing. Now it looks like an official Elf on the Shelf report, doesn’t it?
You can use these reports weekly or even daily if more motivation is needed! I can’t wait for my kids to see these. I know they will work really hard to impress Ginger, and Santa.
