When we think of Christmas time we think of lots of presents, Santa Claus and of course reindeers. I love reindeer especially Rudolph; I think he is everyone’s favorite. If you want you can make my Candy Cane reindeer to hang on your Christmas tree. 

Kids traditionally get 2 weeks off school at Christmas and as well as crafting there is lots of time to do some reading. Why not combine the 2 activities and craft some Christmas bookmarks featuring reindeer. 

I have lots of great DIY bookmarks ideas for kids for other times of the year too if your child wants to have something non seasonal to use when they are reading at other times of the year. Not everyone will want a reindeer bookmark come Summer. 

Below I will show you how to use my free printable template and colored craft papers and turn them into a cute red nosed reindeer bookmark craft.

Christmas is coming and this cute Rudolph reindeer bookmark craft is the perfect way to keep your space in your Christmas novel.

Step 1:

Select red and 3 different shades of brown colored craft papers.

Trace the nose on red paper, the body base, legs, head, and outer ear patterns on the medium light brown paper; trace the horns on the dark brown paper; trace the inner ear, mouth and belly patterns on the light brown paper; and trace the muffler pattern on any colored craft paper you like.

Cut around the traced patterns - good scissor skills practice for little kids.

Step 6:

Apply glue along the open sides (left and right) of the body base and then place the leg cutouts on the glued ends. The leg patterns should be placed inwards.

Step 7:

Attach both legs to the body base pattern. The legs should be glued along the edge only and the rest of the pieces (legs) should be free from glue.

Step 8:

Use a brown sharpie to draw the hoofs of the rudolph reindeer bookmark on the open ends of the leg patterns.

Slide a sheet or page between the body base and the 2 upper legs of the paper reindeer to use it as a Christmas bookmark.

Will you give your friend’s some of these as a Christmas gift? You could have a Christmas craft party before the 25th December and everyone could make their own Rudolph bookmarks. 

My Penguin bookmark craft is another great idea if you want a Winter themed bookmark and not a Christmas one.
