cardstock (we used a glittery one)
red or black sequin or pom-pom
twine or ribbon
glue (tacky or hot glue...hot glue for adults only)
any embellishments you want
Simply trace your child's hand onto the cardstock and cut out. The fingers will become the reindeer legs and the thumb will be the head! Cut sections of pipe cleaner to make antlers...we twisted two smaller pieces onto two larger pieces. Glue antlers onto the back of the thumb and let dry. Then simply glue on eyes, nose and other embellishments. You can tie a bell around the neck using twine or thin ribbon. Finally, glue your wooden dowel onto the back of your reindeer to create a puppet. Make a reindeer for each family member using their hands and then have your kids put on a puppet show! Happy crafting!
