Crafty Morning has some really fun crafts and that's where I found this Reindeer/Rudolph craft.
The other thing I loved about this was that it's personalized by using your child's hands as Rudolph's antlers.

My daughter had to miss the troop meeting where the girls made this craft but we worked on it at home and here's our version.
Cereal box cardboard
Red tissue paper
Black Sharpie marker
Toilet paper roll
We started off tracing my daughters hands onto the cardboard, then cut out. The hands will be the reindeer's antlers. Next, my daughter drew a face on the toilet paper roll and then bunched up a bit of tissue paper for the nose. She's on a kick with drawing hearts so she added to hearts to each antler. For the 'scarf' we wrapped some ribbon at the bottom of the toilet paper roll. To hold the antlers in place simply make 2 slits on each side of the toilet paper roll.
Voila! Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer! So simple and so cute!
There are all kinds of ways you could make this reindeer craft. Our other Daisy leader used pipe cleaners for the antlers and a red gem for the nose instead of tissue paper. With this craft you and your child or classroom can be as creative as you'd like...........have fun!!
Popsicle Stick Reindeer
This reindeer craft also uses your child's hands as the antlers.
Red pom pom
Brown construction paper or brown paper bag
This craft is SUPER DUPER simple. Just glue 3 popsicle sticks together to form a triangle. Add some googly eyes, red pom pom for the nose and finally attach the antlers!
We decided to glue on ribbon and hang this craft on our Christmas tree!
Reindeer Fingerprint Labels
This is such an easy craft and a fun gift to share with family, friends or neighbors. We made a bunch up and delivered to some of my daughter's friends.
Brown pipe cleaners
Red pom pom's
We used a hot glue gun to adhere the accessories to our reindeer. This part should be done by an adult and/or with adult supervision. They really turn out cute!
Our last fun reindeer idea is not a craft but a cookie.......
Reindeer Peanut Peanut Butter Cookies
These are fun to bake with the kids and you can use different kinds of foods for the eyes, antlers and nose. We made these Christmas Eve last year so I don't remember exactly where I got the recipe but here are some links where you can find recipes to make your very own reindeer cookies!
I hope you have as much fun with these reindeer crafts (and cookies!) as we did!
