Christmas Kids Craft Ideas

Our Christmas kids craft ideas are sure to bring some joy this season! We will make our very own reindeer, just like Santa.

These cute little reindeer are easy to make and you can customize them to make your own unique reindeer herd - or recreate the reindeer that pull Santa's sleigh.

Supplies Needed:

  • Paper roll, brown paint, paint brush, googly eyes, pom poms, pipe cleaners, glue, scissors

Age Recommendation:

  • 5 years old and up, and supervision when using scissors

Time to Complete:

  • 30-45 minutes (plus drying time)

Step #1:

Paint the paper roll with brown paint, add additional coats of paint if necessary.

Set this aside to dry completely.

Step #2:

Take a brown pipe cleaner and cut one third of it off. Put this aside for a second. Take the larger section and bend it in half. 

Grab the smaller section that you cut and cut it in half again. Bend each in half and twist around each end of the larger V of pipe cleaner you created. 

This will make your reindeer antlers, repeat this a second time.

Step #3:

Pick out a nose for your reindeer - made up of one larger pom pom and one smaller. 

Remember, if  you want a Rudolph made sure the end of the nose is red. 

Glue the two pom poms together. Set them aside to dry.

Step #4:

Once your paper roll is dry, take your scissors and cut it in half. 

Step #5:

Glue the pipe cleaner antlers to one end of  your paper roll.

Step #6

Opposite the antlers, glue on the reindeer's face - googly eyes and the nose you made in step three.

Step #7

Grab four more small pom poms, in a color that matches with your nose. Glue these around the bottom of your paper roll.

"Now Dasher! Now Dancer! Now Prancer and Vixen! On, Comet! On, Cupid! On, Donner and Blitzen! To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall! Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!"
