I found the coloring book at Dollar Tree, but you can stack any coloring books or art supplies that you already have.
The “Elf Art Studio” sign and coloring pages are in the free printable. It’s design #88 – Elf Art Studio with Coloring Pages in the Free Files Folder.

Find an outfit that you want your elf to “wear.” Right-click on the image, then save it.
Print the image out, trim it, and tape it to your elf. If it’s a little bit bigger, it looks better as the print wraps around it more.
Our Elf gave the boys these suits before the Christmas Market.
