How do we use the Printable Elf Adoption Certificate

Elf Adoption Certificate

To use this certificate, just scroll down to the circular image and download for your children. Then you need to:

  • Add within the area labelled Elf Name, the name that you and your children call, or would like to call your new Elf. Perhaps you can pick a rather fun name, or a traditional one like Jingle, and
  • Add in the section called Family Name, the family that the Elf is going to be adopted by. So, our family name is Neale, so we will add The Neale Family here.

Once you have done this, the Elf you have is now officially a member of your family, and will be able to take part in the usual Elf on the Shelf antics that terrify parents and delight children worldwide at the start of December.

In order to download this activity, click on the circular image below to download it now.
