Rudolph the Red-Nosed Handprint

Your child gets to lend a hand in crafting this ultraeasy decoration, which makes a sweet gift for grandparents this Christmas.


Brown craft foam or card stock
Black marker
Red glitter glue
Gold sequins
Googly eyes
Red pom-pom
Brown pipe cleaner
Paper clip or clothespin

Time needed: Under 1 Hour

1. To assemble one, first use a pencil to trace your child's hand onto a piece of brown craft foam or card stock.

2. Cut out the shape and add black marker hooves to the fingertips.

3. Next, add a red glitter glue collar with gold sequins for bells, then glue on a googly eye, a red pom-pom nose, and a tail cut from the brown craft foam or card stock.

4. For the reindeer's antlers, cut a brown pipe cleaner in half. Bend each half in two (slightly off-center) and curl the ends. Glue together the pipe cleaner pieces, holding them in place with a paper clip or clothespin until the glue dries. Finally, glue the antlers in place on the reindeer.
