“Mommy, can we do a craft?” We were having “Mommy and Me” time, just me and my little man. With Christmas coming up, I had a couple toddler Christmas crafts in mind. My toddler loved making this simple hand and footprint reindeer.
For each hand print reindeer you will need:
- A footprint traced on construction paper (Don’t trace between the toes.)
- 2 construction paper hand prints
- Construction paper to make eyes, nose, and any other details your child wants
For younger children you may need to do the tracing and cutting. For preschoolers it would be great practice for fine motor skills.
Once you have the hand prints and footprint cut out, your child can glue the hand prints on for antlers.
Next, let them create eyes and a nose for their reindeer. Is it a girl reindeer? They may choose to add a bow or make eye lashes. Let them be creative!
My toddler was super proud of his hand and footprint reindeer, making sure to show it to everyone that came to our house the next couple days. It proudly decorates our basement door now, and it will be sure to have a place in our Christmas decorations box for years to come.
