Popscicle Stick Reindeer

Toddler, Pre-K, K

A super simple and fun holiday craft for kids of any age.

To make this craft you will need:
  • 3 Popsicle Sticks
  • White Glue (do NOT try glue stick!)
  • 1 brown pipe cleaner (cut in half)
  • Red pom pom or felt cut out circle, or even construction paper circle cut out
  • Googly eyes
So my kids are little and like to make reindeer look like Rudolph. You could do the craft with a brown or black nose as well. I did try and change it up a little at least one of the reindeer crafts they made today was a "traditional" looking one ;)

Make the letter "A" out of your Popsicle sticks by gluing them together. Now the best thing to do is let it dry--but my kids wouldn't have any of that, so you may have to re-glue before all is said and done.

Add your googly eyes, your red nose, and then bend one half of the pipe cleaner on each side of the top of the head and twist together. This is the hardest part if you haven't wait for the face to dry. But, mommy managed (and re-glued!)

If I had magnet pieces I think this would make the cutest magnet to hold up Christmas themed school work!
