Print a nice and naughty notice and have fun with your kids this Christmas!
This is the time of the year that many parents tend to play the “Santa is watching” card. It is easy to say when your kids act up or when kids act up, or happen to do something wonderful.
However, they may not always believe. What better way than to have a Nice or Naughty Notice arrive for them – straight from the North Pole!

Fill out the form above and get your forms. Print and complete the form with your child’s name and behavior. Make sure it is signed by one of the elves. If you have an Elf on the Shelf, it would be the perfect way to use him or her.
Then, place it on your child’s dresser for them to see when they wake or get home from school. Just watch their eyes when they can tell you are not lying.
It is important that kids know when they are doing good things – not just being corrected for the bad. These nice notices are great to reinforce that good behavior. That in turn makes them want to earn more notices.
However, none of us are perfect. That is the message it is important to convey with your kids if they happen to be issued a Naughty Notice. Make sure you talk it over with your kids and let them know that they are not on the naughty list, but they have been caught doing something that they should not have done.
This is such a perfect learning opportunity for your kids to take responsibility for their own actions. If you do happen to issue a Naughty Notice, try to give Nice notice within a day or so — again to help your kids feel good about themselves.
Christmas is such a magical time for kids and they believe for such a short time. Try to have fun with it and do what you can to make it memorable for your own kids!
