Free Printable Santa Note for Pre-Christmas Toy Declutter

INSIDE: Do a pre-Christmas toy declutter with a free printable note from Santa. Teach kids to give to the less fortunate.

Free personalized note from Santa or Elf on the Shelf to get kids to do a pre-Christmas toy declutter.Starting December 1st, I go from a mom of three to a mother of four. And it’s all because of Sammy. You know, the Elf on the Shelf, that arrives in a (messy) flurry of fake snow, month-long goofy antics and lots of stumbling around in the dark by a mom or dad awoken in a panic that they forgot to move this red clad little guy.

Needless to say, Sammy brings a lot of fun to our home. Goofiness aside, he can also do a lot of good. Like bringing with him a note from the Big Guy in Red himself to get the kids to do a pre-Christmas toy clean out. Heat up your printer and make some pre-Christmas room in your home…

To my surprise, the kiddos met this request with great enthusiasm. I’m sure the thought of new stuff helped but getting a personalized note from Santa certainly make a (small) dent in their play room!

Since everything in December revolves around this silly Elf on the Shelf character, it only made sense that Sammy returned from his magical nightly visit to the North Pole with a personalized note from Santa.

    I love it! I did the same with my kids last weekend – minus the cute note. We managed to declutter a lot, though I would have liked to put aside even more for donation. This is a great idea for encouragement, though, thank you for sharing at The Really Crafty Link Party. Pinned!
