Long time followers know that I love the Elf on the Shelf season! I offer lots of free printable activity sheets, and also Elf on the Shelf printable schedules broken out by age. I’ve previously put together schedules and ideas for kids age 2, age 3, age 4, age 5 and age 6.
This year my daughter is 6 and I’m upping the interactive or educational aspect of the Elf on the Shelf mornings with some new free printables to enjoy!
I know she’ll have a blast working with this code key to reveal Santa’s secret message! It’s easily available to you to download and use for free!
There isn’t really a true recommended age for this activity sheet, nor is it branded as Elf on the Shelf. It can be used for any Christmas related activity this season, including class parties!
UPDATE: Check out how this printable went over with my 4 and 6 year old!
If you do download and print this freebie, I’d love if you tagged me or used the hashtag #SOTDElfOnTheShelf. Check out the hashtag to see all the ideas I’ve done over the years to inspired you this season!
