Looking for reindeer themed crafts for your kids? I have several ideas for you that are fast, easy and fun.
Candy Cane Reindeer
Brown pipe cleaners
Red small pom-pom balls
Take a candy cane and twist brown pipe cleaner around the candy cane up on top of the arch of the candy cane. Bend each pipe cleaner in a stair case fashion to make the antlers of the reindeer.
Glue a red pom-pom ball to the tip of the short part candy cane for the nose.
Glue the googly eyes on the candy cane between the antlers and the nose.
We leave the wrapper on so that we can hang the reindeer on the tree and then eat them on Christmas!
Brown construction paper (light brown and dark brown).
Red construction paper
Large google eyes
Trace child’s hands on dark brown paper. Cut hands out.
Trace one of your child’s foot on the light brown paper. Cut the foot print out.
Glue the bottom of the hand prints to the back top of the foot print. The hands are the antlers and the foot is the face.
Now glue on the eyes and a red circle for the nose.
Brown construction paper
Brown lunch sack
Crayons or markers
Trace your child’s hands on to the construction paper. Cut the hands out.
Glue the hands to the back side of the brown paper lunch sack (the side that is completely flat). Make sure the hands stick up passed the paper bag like antlers.
Have the kids draw the eyes and a nose on to what would normally be the bottom of the bag (and even a tongue under the folded part of the paper bag if they want).
Stick your hand in and have a puppet show! Use your hand to make the reindeer talk.
These ideas were just off the top of my head that I have done with my own daughter in the past. They are simple and I think everyone has done them before in their past, they are classics! All these projects and more can also be found at http://www.dltk-holidays.com/Xmas/reindeer.html . One of my favorite crafts websites for kids! They have a little bit different variations of these crafts but they’re still fun. They also have a lot more reindeer crafts if you wanted different ideas.
