The Elf on the Shelf launches Letters to Santa

Published on: 3rd November 2017

Letters to Santa is a new way for parents to ensure the traditional Christmas wish list gets to Santa on time.

The new Scout Elf Express Delivers Letters to Santa features Santa’s Special Paper, which shrinks letters to elf-size so that children will think the Scout Elves can hand-deliver the tiny messages to Santa.

Following tradition, children write their letter to Santa on Santa’s Special Paper and, with the help of an adult, place it on Mrs. Claus’ Magic Press before putting it in the oven for a few minutes. When it’s ready, the letter will have shrunk – small enough for children to think that a Scout Elf can take it back to the North Pole that night, and personally see that it’s delivered to Santa.

The letter can then be displayed on Christmas trees as a keepsake ornament.

Each Scout Elf Express Delivers Letters to Santa box set comes with an illustrated storybook, eight pieces of Santa’s Special Paper, Mrs. Claus’ Magic Press, eight ribbon sashes, two markers and two sheets of parchment paper.

Families can also download The Elf on the Shelf apps for games and elf tricks and tips for free from iTunes.
