Reindeer Handprint Christmas Craft

We are so excited for Christmas.  

I really get into the holidays; I get completely carried away with the music, the snow, the movies, and the decorations.  

I love telling Rory about Christmas, Santa, the works.   She loves Rudolph, especially because her favorite toy is from Rudolph the Red nosed reindeer’s the Island of Misfit toys.  Because of that, we have decided to make several Rudolph crafts this holiday season.  These handprint reindeer make such cute cards, and they are so easy to make!

Materials needed for Rudolph Handprint Art:

  • brown paint
  • something for a red nose
  • google eyes, or other kind of eyes
  • markers to draw smiles
  • brown construction paper

Homemade Reindeer Handprints

This is my favorite part.  Also, the kids like this part too.  

If you are able to direct the child to place their hands in exactly the right place to fashion reindeer antlers, then doing this on one piece of paper will work.  But if you have a younger child or one that needs more help, using a separate piece of paper and then cutting out the handprints works GREAT!

How to Make Reindeer Handprints

  1. Paint both of your child’s hands brown.  
  2. Have them place both hands on the paper and space them a little bit apart.  
  3. Set it aside, and allow it to dry.

When they are dry you can now decorate!

Make a Reindeer Head out of Construction Paper

To decorate, cut a reindeer head out of a piece of brown construction paper.   I made an oval and then cut the sides smaller, similar to the shape of a bowling pin so that it is smaller on top and larger on the bottom.

Make a Rudolph head out of brown construction paper

We drew on some eyes, a mouth, and used a big, puffy, sparkly, pom pom for Rudolph’s nose.
