Elf Corner Bookmarks

Elf Corner Bookmarks

Does the elf visit your home before Christmas?

If it does, I’m sure your kids can’t stop talking about it and keep thinking of the new ways it will surprise them.

Last year, our elf left a note that prompted the kids to make a festive craft. What a better idea than to make these Elf corner bookmarks!

They are easy to fold and come with a printable template that you can grab at the end of this post.

These bookmarks are a fun activity to make at home, and also perfect for large groups. Just print as many templates as you need and use them at your church or school parties.

The elf bookmarks just require cutting the pieces and folding them, which makes it perfect for children of all ages.
