Cutest Christmas Reindeer Handprint Craft With Rudolph's Red Nose
From the blogger: "We love holiday handprint projects because they double as a Christmas craft and then a treasured keepsake. These Rudolph the Reindeer handprints would make really cute Christmas cards. To make this Rudolph handprint art, you need: brown paint, something for a red nose, googly eyes (or other kind of eyes to craft with), markers to draw smiles, and brown construction paper. If you are able to direct the child to place their hands in exactly the right place to fashion reindeer antlers, then doing this on one piece of paper will work. But if you have a younger child or one that needs more help, using a separate piece of paper and then cutting out the handprints works GREAT!"
Estimated CostUnder $10
Time to CompleteUnder an hour
Primary TechniqueGeneral Crafts
- Brown paint
- Something for a red nose
- Googly eyes
- Markers to draw smiles
- Brown construction paper
Paint both of your child’s hands brown.
Have them place both hands on the paper and space them a little bit apart.
Set it aside, and allow it to dry.
When they are dry you can now decorate!
To decorate, cut a reindeer head out of a piece of brown construction paper. I made an oval and then cut the sides smaller, similar to the shape of a bowling pin so that it is smaller on top and larger on the bottom.
We drew on some eyes, a mouth, and used a big, puffy, sparkly, pom pom for Rudolph’s nose.
