Elf on the Shelf Magical Recovery Kit

Ready for some help this Elf Season? Then you need the Ultimate Christmas Elf Book of Ideas - 25+ Printables and Ideas for just $4.99!!

So, last year we had an Elf on the Shelf family crisis!  I live in Southern Utah, along with my parents and 3 older sisters (my little brother is in Northern Utah).  That being the case, all of our kids are super close and are together a lot.  Basically, what happened last year was that one of my 6 year old nephews didn’t believe in the Elf on the Shelf and decided to prove it to two of his other cousins.  He went from one sisters house to another sisters house and did the same exact thing – grabbed their families Elf, tossed him on the ground and at one of their houses even stepped on him some.

As most of you are aware – you are not supposed to touch your Elf.  If you touch your Elf, they will lose their magic and then they won’t be able to fly back to the North Pole each night to report to Santa.

My 5 year old nephew in particular was BEYOND devastated.  He is just a believer in everything and was sure that his Elf was dead.  He cried so hard that at one point he was literally hyperventilating.  My sister called my mom (who I happened to be with ) and was telling her what happened.  We were at Target at the time and immediately an idea popped into my head.  I jumped into my car, drove home and came up with the idea for the Elf on the Shelf Magical Recovery Kit.  

I grabbed some Red Glitter and Green Glitter and put in a baggie.  I then proceeded to create a letter and certificate from the North Pole that told my nephews that if they sprinkled this Magical North Pole Dust on their Elf that when they woke up the next morning their Elf would be all better.  I literally threw the idea together in 15 minutes.  We door bell ditched it to their houses and it TOTALLY did the trick!  If anything, it made them believe even more!

Because, last years “edition” wasn’t my best work – I decided to fix it up a bit and share it with you all.  I’ve gotta assume that there are other houses out there that have had the same crisis happen to them!

So, here it is, the Elf on the Shelf Magical Recovery Kit!  Included in the Kit is a Poem from Santa, Certificate of Health for their Elf and Bag Toppers for the Elf Magical Recovery Dust!

To create your Magical Recovery Kit get glitter of any color (aka Magical Recovery Dust) and put it in a ziploc bag.  You are welcome to use the provided bag topper if you’d like.  Print out the Poem from Santa and leave it with the “Magic Recovery Dust” on your door step with the Letter from Santa.

The Poem  reads:

Santa heard Elf is feeling blue
His magic is fading fast
St. Nick’s powers are strong and true
And Elf’s sadness will not last
 
With a wiggle of His nose
Santa will make it better
Your elf will be aglow
With more magic than ever
 
Sprinkle this dust on Elf
For the problem it will fix
He’ll be back on the Shelf
Thanks to one of Kris Kringel’s tricks

 

Then, the next morning you can have your kid(s) find your families Elf, along with the Elf Certificate of Health next to him!  All will be right in the world again!  hehe 🙂

 I hope this helps keep your Elf on the Shelf Magic alive through the whole Holiday Season! Be sure to check out our Elf on the Shelf Page to check out more posts to help you make your Elfing experience magical and fun!

    My 4 year old decided to test the magic of Styx the Elf and touched him today. I am so glad I saw this site last week and remembered about you recovery kit!!!! Tomorrow there will be a very sick Styx (I made him a sleeping and put out meds) along with the recovery dust. At some point in the day, I plan to get him sitting up so that he seems to be feeling better after the recovery dust. I hope she learned her lesson! My kids were both VERY upset when he had to leave halfway through the day (aided by other elves during nap time) to go to the Elf ER!

    Thank you so much. Last year we had a similar problem & I couldn’t think of anything clever so I told my kids that Bob would probably not move for a few days until he felt better, This is a much better idea should we have the same issue this year with a houseguest.

    We had an Elf crisis as well last year. Thinking on my feet as my daughter cried because her big brother touched our Elf, I grabbed some reindeer food we keep in a container under our Christmas tree. I LOVE this idea even better! Thanks!
