Elf on the Shelf Printable Props Donuts

There are so many fun ways to hide the elf on the shelf in situations that are funny for the kids to find. This one is great because not only is it super easy but it also has an interactive element with the free elf on the shelf printable filled with donut fun. I sure hope you love these free elf on the shelf printable props.


  • Cereal (Fruit Loops or Cheerios)
  • Powdered Sugar
  • Water
  • Sprinkles


Mix 1/8 C Powdered Sugar with a 1/2 T water. If it needs more powdered sugar to get a good consistency – add a little. The idea is just a wet glaze for dipping here.

Next, dip a size of the cereal into the glaze then into sprinkles poured out onto a plate.

Place them on a little piece of cardboard like a donut box look. Set aside to harden.

These can be made strictly as a prop for the elf on the shelf or can be made for delicious mini snacks. Use the free printable sign below to set the stage for the elves to be found.

Best Ways to Use Free Printables

You might have seen this list from me before but I think it is worth sharing over and over. Sometimes the people in the back need to hear things a few times, right?  There are so many great ways to use free printables.  Here are some of my favorites.

  • Print them and mail in an envelope with a stamp. Snail mail rocks.
  • Batch some up to make an activity book.  This is great for a road trip!
  • Print and use at a place setting on the table to create a conversation starter.
  • Add them to goody bags.  By the way, goody bags are not just for birthday parties.
  • Package them up with your favorite markers and crayons to give as a gift.
  • Drop a few off at the local coffee shop with fun pencils to spread some happy.
  • Cut them up to make cards, gift wrap and decorations.

BEST Tools For Working With Free Printables

These are my favorite tools and art supplies to use with free printables and why I love them too.

  1. Printer – This Laser Printer is inexpensive and works like a charm.  It even works with Alexa.  Bonus!
  2. Scissors – Lots of printables can be cut up to create decorations and cards and things like that.
  3. Markers and Crayons – All thing ooly work the best for me.  I LOVE all of their markers, pencils and crayons.
  4. Colored Pencils – For adult coloring, PRISM makes the colored pencils that I love to use most.
  5. Twine – For creating banners and garlands from printables, I love this twine best.
  6. Adhesive – Lots of printables have pieces that get cut out and put together.  This is my fave tape runner!
