We spent nearly a full day Christmas crafting the other day. The kids went through our Holidayopedia and each picked out crafts they wanted to do. Among them were some cute reindeer I thought you might like. To make this reindeer craft, you start by just tracing circles on to brown construction paper. I used a small plate to trace.
Once they’re cut out you fold the paper in half, crease it, and then roll in into a cone. Glue the cone closed and secure it with a paper clip while it dries.
Next, you just attach whatever accouterments the kids like. We used wiggly eyes, red pom-pom noses, ribbon bows, and little antlers we cut from the same sheet of construction paper. Some of them also got little handles that we stapled on. My son hung his on our tree as a little ornament. My youngest daughter wanted to keep hers as a little treat purse.
And the one in the middle was made by my older daughter. She took the idea and turned it UPSIDE DOWN! Hers sits on her little bureau and comes out every so often to sit as a place marker by her dinner plate. She accidentally crafted it upside down, but I thought it turned out pretty cute!
