Take a deep breath, tired, holiday-preppin’ Mama. And rest easy, drowning-in-december Dada. We’ve got the elf antics covered tonight with this fun, free elf printable…
Christmas is truly the most MAGICAL time of the year, is it not? There’s nothing better as a parent than to see that sparkle in our little ones’ eyes as all of the wonder and delight of the holiday season unfolds before them.
And yes! We have our elves to thank for some of that. It’s so much fun to see the kids come downstairs each morning and hunt around the house to see what mischief their elf has gotten into the night before.
But man, that night before part can be a bear.
You worked hard all day. You had to get your kids dressed (in possibly clean clothes), packed a lunch (with preferably something considered at least remotely close to healthy), dragged them to 7 activities after school, fed them some kind of meal that you likely felt guilty was not decidedly gourmet.
Let’s not even mention the insanity of the bedtime routine 🤦♀️.
And after all of that, when you finally get a moment to sit, and maybe have a sip of wine while enjoying 2-3 minutes of a guilty-pleasure Netflix show…
It dawns on you.
What the heck is “Buddy” or “Elfie” or “Jingle Jangle” going to do tomorrow??!!!
The stress can be insane, right?!
And that’s exactly why here at The Heathered Nest, we’ve created Elf 911.
Elf 911 is a collection of done-for-you printable elf fun so that you’ll never:
- have another late-night “Oh Fudge” moment trying to figure out what to do with the elf
- have to explain to your son or daughter why Elfie didn’t move (again)
- feel inferior when your child talks about all the creative, fun things the neighbor’s elf is doing, while yours is doing, well, nada
Each printable Elf 911 kit comes with a complete elf set-up, including everything you’ll need to bring the idea to life. Just print, cut and you’re done.
Because the holidays should have more fun…and less stress…especially when it comes to your family elf.
We want moms and dads to feel much less worried around the holiday season, and much more like this guy…
