There are some rules that come along with the Elf on the Shelf, and sometimes they are hard for little kids to remember. To help you we made this Elf on the Shelf Rules Printable that you can print out and keep on the fridge (or where ever else you want to put it), so the kids can remember the Elf on the Shelf Rules.
Elf on The Shelf Rules
The easiest way to make sure your kiddos follow the rules, is to explain them first.
With Elf on the Shelf you can not touch him. If he is touched he loses his magic for that night and he can not fly back to Santa.
We also like to make sure that we are using our elf to help our kids remember that a big part of Christmas is being kind to other people.
