17+ Reindeer Crafts For Kids

Rudolph the red nose reindeer had a very shiny nose… Let’s face it; reindeers are a big part of the holiday season. So, when you’re kids are looking for something to do on a cold afternoon why not suggest one of these cute reindeer crafts?

Here’s a short description of some of them.

Chocolate Scented Play Dough Reindeer

Homemade play dough is really easy to make. It requires just a few simple pantry ingredients. Sir together a batch to make the reindeer’s body and head.

Use small sticks for the legs and tail. Attach googly eyes, a small red pom-pom for the nose and little pieces of sparkly tinsel for the antlers and your reindeer is good to go!

Yogurt Cup Rudolph Reindeer Craft

Do you or your kids love yogurt? If the answer is yes you probably dispose of lots of empty yogurt cups. This project, similar to the one above, is a great way to recycle some of them. In this case, just use a yogurt cup in place of the play dough.

Reindeer Paper Plate Craft

This is a fun kids craft for the littlest artists in your life. Necessary supplies include paper plates, construction paper of various colours, brown craft paint, glitter glue, paint brushes and a glue stick. The neatest aspect of this project is that the reindeer’s antlers are made from a cut out of your child’s handprints.

Reindeer Droppings Treat Bags

If you’re looking for a cute treat to send for your child’s Christmas party, consider these reindeer droppings treat bags. They don’t take long to put together, especially when you print out the free poem tag provided. Choose a candy like Whoppers or Milk Duds for the “droppings.”

Reindeer Crafts for kids

If you’re a fan of Rudolph the Red-Nose Reindeer you might find it interesting to note that he came to be in 1939 because of a story originally written to hand out to kids (during the Christmas season) at a department store. Rudolph’s been guiding Santa and enchanting children ever since!
