This handprint reindeer adds some whimsy to your Christmas decorations. If you're on the lookout for a creative way to showcase your little one's hands and feet, celebrate your growing child—and the holiday season—with a handprint reindeer craft made from the traced outlines of your child's hands and feet. Make a handprint reindeer with your child out of paper and pom poms.

What You Need:

  • Light brown construction paper
  • Dark brown construction paper
  • Red pom pom
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Wiggle eyes
  • Sock
  • Tape

What You Do:

  1. Help your child trace her foot on a piece of dark brown construction paper.
  2. Let her use scissors to carefully cut out the foot. This shape will be her reindeer's face.
  3. Next, have her fold a sheet of light brown construction paper in half.
  4. Help her trace on of her hands on the light brown construction paper.
  5. With the paper still folded, have her cut out her traced hand from the paper. She should now have two hand shapes.
  6. Let her tape the cut-out hands behind the reindeer head to create antlers.
  7. Have her glue two wiggle eyes in place to give the reindeer goofy personality.
  8. The last touch is the "Rudolph red" nose! Help your child glue the red pom pom to the center of the reindeer's face.
