This handprint reindeer is one of our favorite Christmas crafts.  Made from your child's footprint and handprints it's a great way to capture a memory of when your children are so small.  This is a great Christmas craft to make year after year and then to display them all so you can watch how the reindeer grow!  It's easy enough for even very young children to do and makes a great homemade Christmas gift or even Christmas card for grandparents and family.

What you'll need:

  • Light brown construction paper
  • Dark brown construction paper
  • 2 googly eyes
  • Red pom pom
  • Scissors
  • Glue
How to make your Handprint Reindeer
  • Trace your child's foot onto the dark brown construction paper and cut it out.
  • Trace both of your child's hands onto the light brown construction paper and cut them out.
  • Glue the two handprints (at the wrist portion) to the back of the footprint (up near the toes) to be the antlers.
  • Glue two googly eyes onto the footprint.
  • Glue the pom pom onto the heel of the footprint as a nose.
