Incorporate a Christmas spin into your child's writing practice with the help of these cute little elves! 

When you need a simple but enjoyable activity to keep your energetic little ones from getting bored, templates are the way to go. Printable templates make any craft or activity so much easier and worry-free.

But this is especially true when we're trying to add some fun to our children's learning lessons. It can be time-consuming and challenging to find easy and ready-to-go learning activities. And that's why we love this Elf writing ready-to-print template! 

Little ones can have fun colouring and putting together their cute little elf paper craft and then practice their writing. We also have a Santa writing activity and a Christmas tree writing activity
