However they arrive, they will need a way of introducing themselves and the concept!
FOR FIRST TIMERS
Using the Elf and Book set:
I suggest reading the book to the children the night before the Elf arrives at your house! This will help introduce the character, story and concept. By giving your children a “heads up” not only will they understand who the elf is and why they are in your house but it also builds excitement and dispells fear!
Print the letter and have it ready to arrive with your elf. By reading the letter the concept is reinforced and the child begins to make a connection between Santa and his special helper, your Elf!
WE HAVE DONE THIS BEFORE!
If you have had a visiting Elf before (like us!) go straight to step 2! This will give them a reminder about the Elf and you can then enjoy the story at a later time!
We have two versions of the ELF INTRODUCTION LETTER for you!
The first is for A CHILD (just one child participating)
