This is a sweet idea that I remember from when I was little. We would tie a ribbon that was our height in a bow and put it in a baggie or a box with a little note.
I thought it would be fun to make this into a holiday craft for kids. It would be great to do this in class!
The free printable is custom for 2017. I love how the whole thing rhymes so well with the year – ha!
It comes with a red and green option.
(I know I got a little ahead of myself and put 2018 like the sleep deprived mom that I am, but I fixed the printable to show 2017. Because it’s 2017 right now. Duh.)
Just print, cut and punch a whole at the top. Then, let the kids sign the bottom. Measure a string or ribbon to their height and tie it at the top. Isn’t it sweet?
I also have a bunch of awesome Elf On The Shelf printables! You can check them out here. I love the naughty notice to help kids with bad behavior. And there is a note for being good as well!
