Elf on the Shelf – Printable Joke Cards

Elf on the shelf jokes buttons 345x575 Elf on the Shelf   Printable Joke Cards

I created these joke cards for Pam to use with her Elf this year.  I thought it would be so cute to have the elf tell a joke each day. Just print, cut, and each morning your elf can leave a joke behind for the kiddos to enjoy! I don’t have an Elf but I am going to be using these in Caleb’s lunch box each day in December. I know it will make his day! I had  lot of request to make a full set of 25 so there was one for each day. There is a third sheet for download at the bottom now with 5 more jokes for you!

  • Kimberly Hoag

    Thank you so much!

  • Nicole

    Love these! So cute! Definitely using these. =) I “hacked” our Elf, Eddie, to make him hang, bend, and climb! (Wire, magnets, velcro.) It was super-easy! If you wanna check it out, I made a tutorial on my blog at: http://lifesolovely.com/2012/12/01/elf-on-the-shelf-mod-in-easy-steps/

    Thank you sooo much! These are great!!!

  • Akiko White

    Thank you for sharing!

  • Carolyn

    Thanks! These are great, but I have one friendly critique – my daughter is just learning to read, so the cursive script for the joke answers is sometimes difficult for her to decipher. Otherwise, thanks so much for making these. They are terrific!

  • The 36th AVENUE

    I love this so much… I am featuring it tomorrow on my blog. Thank you so much ladies for visiting my party!

  • Kerry @ Made For Real

    Super cute! Using these in my 12 Days envelopes!! Thank you!

    thank you so much for letting me print these for my girls’ lunches! :) Merry Christmas to you!

  • loonyqt

    these are awesome! I used them in our big advent calendar with little cubbies… :) THANKS!

  • Jenni

    So cute! I’m actually using them for drink labels for my cookie exchange party. I bought 2 dz. Starbucks frappuccino bottles at Costco, emptied them into a drink dispenser (along with another one of milk), washed and removed sbux label, put these on, wrapped a little bakers twine and popped in a red/white polka dot paper straw! voila- no need to write name!

  • Jenni

    I’m also planning on using them for gift tags ;)

  • Carly

    Awesome!! My 8 year old is going to be guffawing all day!

  • Michelle

    I posted about your jokes on my blog. Please visit, and if you’d like me to change something, please let me know. Thanks!

    These are so cute, Thank you!

  • Lisa

    just started this a couple days ago (sadly so late) with my 7 & 9 year olds. We have one year if we are lucky of real “belief” before it becomes family fun. Thank-you so much for your printables! I nicked the background and created a card from our elf with a little note from tonight’s antics and then glued one of your jokes to the backside. So much fun!

  • Fickle Frick

    These are fantastic!!! Thank you for these. I made an advent calendar and have printed and laminated the jokes. 1 will go in each pocket. :) I am grateful.

  • fonnetta

    Thank you so much! You have saved me a TON of time and they are adorable!

  • Katie Jasinski

    Such a great idea! Our Scout Elf, Elfie will love these! I’ve shared this link on my blog page, I hope that’s ok- http://elfiejasinski.blogspot.com.au/
