Easy Christmas Reindeer Craft with Clothespins

Christmas Reindeer Craft

Materials for Reindeer Craft

  • Three clothespins
  • One popsicle stick
  • Two small googly eyes
  • Yard, ribbon, or pipe cleaner (preferably red)
  • One mini red pom-pom (we didn’t have a mini, so we used the smallest available. Rudolph has quite the honker.)
  • Paint (whatever color your child wants doesn’t need to be brown)
  • Glue

Steps to Making a Clothespin Reindeer

  • Pin one clothespin on one end of the popsicle stick and glue
  • Pin a second clothespin on the other end of the popsicle stick about one inch from the end and glue

Now you have the body, front and back legs of your reindeer

  • Take the third popsicle stick and “pin”‘ one end of the popsicle stick to make the head with antlers and glue it together

Now you have the body, front and back legs, head, and antlers

  • Paint your reindeer. Our two-year-old chose the color green, and it looked pretty festive!
  • Allow your reindeer time to dry.
  • Then, glue mini pom-poms and googly eyes to complete your reindeer’s face
  • Finally, take red yarn, ribbon, or a pipe cleaner and fix a bow around your reindeer’s neck
  • My son also really wanted a tail for the reindeer so we ended up just adding a bigger pom-pom to the rear end of our reindeer.

Of course, you should accompany this activity with lots of singing of “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” and key your Pandora up to a holiday station! We also are preparing for a Rudolph felt board story. I am excited about this one.

Have fun, and thanks for visiting!
