Reindeer Ornament

Several years ago my grandkids made me some reindeer ornaments that have adorned our tree ever since. They are among my favorite decorations. They aren't difficult to make and would be a fun project for little ones.

You'll need some brown construction paper, scissors, crayons, string and glue. If you want to get fancy, you can get the movable plastic eyes and a little red pom pom for the nose.

Trace the child's foot on a piece of the brown construction paper. Cut it out and set aside. This will be the reindeer's face.

Next trace each of the child's hands on more brown paper and cut out. These will be the antlers.

You may want to glue these to some poster board or stiffer paper to make them sturdier.

Then glue the hand cutouts to the top of the "foot" on the back to make the antlers. Use the crayons to make the eyes and nose or glue on the plastic eyes and red pom pom nose.

Add a string to the back with some glue and you have a cute little reindeer made by your cute little dears.
