I know it's still October. No, I'm not suggesting that we need to forego Halloween or Thanksgiving, but I DO know that if I don't start creating new fun downloads now, there's no way I'll get through all that I want to in time for you to prep for the truly enjoyable time before Christmas. If I work on it all NOW, then I, too, will be able to pull out an item from my stash each night once my own little munchkins are in bed. NO STRESS - just Christmas fun.
Also, if you DO intend to have a postcard or letter postmarked from the North Pole from your elf BEFORE his/her arrival, then you need to do that NOW. Here is a link to a free downloadable postcard and instructions on having it postmarked.
Today's printable is a free "Elf School" chalkboard to use with your elf. You can frame it, you can print it on cardstock and leave it as is on a table. I would suggest that you give your elf some white chalk and smudge his nose with some chalk dust. (I don't like to get our elf's body dirty, because I know that I'm the one that will have to clean it.) So all you really need is a piece of chalk and this printable! (But feel free to take it as far as you wish with other "classmates", small notebooks and pencils - available at the party store, and other school-related items.)

As always, I encourage you to create some of the "super special" Elf surprises, and then trade them with your friends and neighbors so that the joy (and efforts) are shared!!!
By all means, share this, pin it, print it, blog about it, but please link back to this post.
