Hands Down the Cutest Reindeer I’ve Seen all Year

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)
glue stick
marker for eyes and nose

  1. For the antlers, trace your each of your child’s hands on a single sheet of construction paper.
  2. Trace your child’s foot on the paper you are using for the head and cut it out.
  3. Glue the hands (antlers) to the head (foot) from the back. The toes of the traced foot will be the top of the head.
  4. Add eyes and a nose with the marker (or googly eyes if you have them!)
  5. 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.
