Hello friends! It’s just a month to Christmas and we are more than happy to get you all our collection of free printable Elf on the Shelf coloring pages. Before proceeding, we would like to introduce you to the history involving Elf on the Shelf.
The cute, smiling elves we use to decorate our houses during Christmas were first featured in a children’s book named “The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition” in 2005. The book by Carol Aebersold and her daughter Chanda Bell narrates the story how Santa would send his little helper, elf to check if the children have been naughty or nice. The Elves start visiting the kids from the Thanksgiving and continue it until the Christmas eve, after which they return to the North Pole. The book itself came with an elf puppet, which parents used to create their own stories. The concept was a huge hit and the figure Elf on the Shelf grew into other merchandise, including toys and even a full-length feature film.
Every year, when the children go off to their beds, the parents put the elves in different locations, so that the children are surprised pleasantly when they wake up in the morning. It’s said that children can only chat with the elves, but can’t touch them, or else it will lose their magic and disappear forever, as mentioned in the book. Some parents even leave some presents near the elves so that it looks like the elf has rewarded them for being nice. Parents even share the pictures of their elves placed on the unusual places on the social media.
