Reindeer Craft with Popsicle Sticks

All kids love reindeers and this reindeer craft with popsicle sticks is the perfect way to pass cold December days in the runup to Santa Claus.

Children know the names of Santa’s 8 reindeers, Prancer, Donner, Blitzen, Dancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid and the most famous Rudolph.

Reindeers are crucial in the delivery of Santa’s presents as they pull the sleigh! I have a few other reindeer crafts for kids including my toilet paper roll Reindeer and my Candy Cane Reindeer

I love using my leftover popsicle sticks. Every time the kids finish eating a ice lolly in the Summer we wash our lolly sticks and put them in my craft box for later use. 

I hope you enjoy this Christmas popsicle stick craft and if you have spare popsicle sticks leftover you can always try my Nutcracker craft and my Elf Hat Craft.

Reindeer Craft with Popsicle Sticks

This Reindeer craft with popsicle sticks will help you make Rudolph! Perhaps you might make 8 reindeers and then there will be enough to pull Santa's sleigh! A great Christmas popsicle craft for kids, which needs Mum's help with the glue gun.


  • Brown Paint or Paint Pens
  • Small Red Craft Pom Pom
  • Paintbrushes
  • Regular Popsicle Sticks
  • Small Popsicle Sticks
  • Black Marker
  • Craft Eyes
  • Small Piece of Cardboard
  • Hot Glue Gun & Glue
  • Small Jingle Bell


Step 1

Evenly line up 7 regular size popsicle sticks 

Using hot glue gun, run a line of hot glue the entire length of a small popsicle stick & press it horizontally onto one end of the 7 sticks - repeat this step on the other end as well 

Step 2

Flip the newly made board over and coat with an even layer of brown paint  

Step 3

Using the cardboard cut two antler shapes and paint them with the brown paint, let dry

Step 4

Now attach antlers from behind at one end of the surface  

Step 5

Glue the eyes and nose in place 

Step 6

Using the black marker draw a smile or mouth 

Step 7

Attach the jingle bell 

Your reindeer is now complete!  

Will you make Rudolph or one of the other reindeers? Perhaps you might make lots of these.

Why not attach some string/yarn and hang this on your tree. You could also string lots together and make a Reindeer garland.
