You know Dasher and Dancer all those other reindeer, right? This guy would probably be Rudolph since he has a red nose.
Cute, isn’t he? Want to make one or two or all 9 of them?
1 or 2 sheets of construction paper for the antlers (we used brown to be more authentic but any color would be cute)
1 sheet of construction paper for the head (I had a tan sheet laying around but you could use any color that contrasts well with the antlers), glue stick, googly eyes are optional (I just happened to have a pair on hand)
1 sheet of construction paper to mount the reindeer to (I imagine this is optional but I like the way it looks)
marker for eyes and nose
- For the antlers, trace your each of your child’s hands on a single sheet of construction paper.
- Trace your child’s foot on the paper you are using for the head and cut it out.
- Glue the hands (antlers) to the head (foot) from the back. The toes of the traced foot will be the top of the head.
- Add eyes and a nose with the marker (or googly eyes if you have them!)
- Glue the reindeer to the larger sheet of construction paper if desired.
Tah-dah! Now you have a ridiculously cute reindeer and a nice memory of the size of your child’s hands and feet if you hang on to it after the holidays.
