While you have the brown paint out and your kids are already messy--try this hand print reindeer as well.
To make this craft you will need:
One Cute Hand
Markers for facial features
This one is pretty simple. Paint your child's hand and stamp on the paper. The fingers are the antlers, the palm is the face. Add facial features, or let your child do that part. You don't have to use just markers--I cut out a red nose from scrap construction paper.
