The movie Elf just might be our favorite family Christmas movie of all time! We watch it every year without fail and the kids just love it.

We’ve made a photo elf craft in the past, but we wanted a new, fresh craft to make after we watch it. That’s exactly why we made this elf toilet paper roll craft.

It’s a simple elf craft that’s great for young kids of all ages!

We’re giving you a free printable template that has 2 versions that will work for everyone.

The first version is a craft template. This will help your child make their own elf craft from colored paper and pom poms.

The second version in the color in template. With this one, you’ll print out the black and white version and kids can color it in with crayons and markers. After they color it in, all they need to do is cut it out and glue it on, so it’s great for young kiddos!
