Christmas Countdown - December 14

Hand and Foot Reindeer!

This cute reindeer is made from your child's handprints and footprint, cut out of construction paper. It's easy, the kids love to trace and use scissors and glue and make a mess of your house, you can't go wrong!

You will need:
Brown and tan (or orange) construction paper (or ANY colour, really, who cares?)
Googly eyes (optional but VERY popular!)

Trace around the child's foot using brown construction paper. This will be the reindeer's head.

Trace around the child's hands using tan construction paper. These 2 pieces will be the reindeer's antlers.

Glue the handprint "antlers" to the top of the reindeer. Add a bright red paper nose, a paper (or drawn) mouth, and googly eyes (or paper eyes) to the reindeer's head.

You can now decorate your house for Christmas with these cute reindeers.

Used this one years ago for a playgroup newsletter. Source:

I love this idea!!! Zane is not too into arts and crafts, but I think he's going to love this one.

Happy belated birthday, by the way. Hope your day was fabulous!

Oh, the boys will LOVE this! On every birthday card we've made this year, Tristan insists on tracing his hand and then Simon's too. A perfect decoration for Granny and Papa Lou!
