You Know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen, Comet, cupid, and Donner and Blitzen. But do you recall…The most famous reindeer of all? This simple Reindeer craft uses basic shapes to make a fun and simple Reindeer Portrait. It might be our easiest reindeer crafts for preschoolers that we have made yet. Read on to find out how we made it.
I love this little Christmas collage project. It is perfect for reinforcing cutting and pasting skills, reviewing shapes and organizing them by size.
- Brown paper – cut into 3 rectangles in graduating sizes
- White paper – cut into 3 circles in graduating sizes
- Black paper – cut into 3 small circles in graduating sizes
- Blue paper for background
- Darker brown paper – cut into strips for antlers, and 2 small rectangles for noses
- Red paper – cut into a rectangle for Rudolph nose.
I cut all the shapes ahead of time, just to make is easier for little fingers. However, if you are working with older kids, they could cut out the shapes themselves. My preschooler had so much fun building these little stacking reindeer.
A fun activity for Christmas Eve is sprinkling Magical Reindeer Food. It is so easy to create, and can make a perfect gift for families with little kids.
