This is a fun quick Christmas craft that kids will love. I remember when I was a craft fanatic as a kid, I loved tracing my hand on the paper and cutting it out. With this craft, you can adapt base on your kids abilities and age level. I did this craft with my 17-month daughter, so obviously I did the tracing and cutting part; but she liked watching me tracing around her hand. As I traced her hand, I talked about her hand and fingers (since she’s learning about her body parts). She also loved putting the poms poms and paper on the glue on the paper where I told her to put it. The handprint red nosed reindeer turned out so darling! You can even make an ornament out of it by punch hole and thread it.
- Brown construction paper
- Medium sized Red Pom Pom
- Small sizes green Pom Pom
- Black sharpie
- Patterned paper
- Glue (elmers glue works best with kids) I used glue stick and it worked because it’s really sticky. You also can use hot glue gun to make it really stick, but make sure keep it clear away from the kids.
- Collect all of the supplies
- Trace a hand on the brown paper. (Make sure keep the fingers a bit apart because the fingers are the antlers ☺️)
- Cut out the hand
- Cut out a bow from the patterned paper. Size it with the hand so you can decide how big you want the bow. I eye balled it, but if you’re on the perfectionist side- print out a bow template online. (There are tons on google image)
- Glue the bow on the bottom-center of the hand.
- Put the green Pom Pom on the center of the bow
- Then put the red Pom Pom on upper part of the thumb
- Finally, with a black sharpie, draw the eyes and mouth.
Hope y’all are having a very merry Christmas!
