Heart Reindeer Craft

Here is a COOL REINDEER the kids can make from  HEART SHAPES!




Materials
  • brown paper
  • heart templates (older kids could draw their own hearts)
  • pencil
  • scissors
  • glue
  • 2 google eyes or black marker
  • red pom pom or red marker


    Heart Sizes
    • 3 large (head, body, back legs)
    • 1 medium (front legs)
    • 4 small (antennae)

    Directions
    • Trace or draw the heart shapes onto construction paper.
    • Cut out all the shapes.
    • Cut 1 large heart, 1 medium heart, and 2 small hearts in half (so that the 2 parts are symmetrical).
    • Use the shapes to construct the reindeer. (See picture above.)
    • Glue the shapes together.
    • Glue the google eyes and pom pom nose onto the reindeer or draw eyes and a nose with a marker.
      The kids might enjoy listening to holiday music and singing songs while making their reindeer and reading some holiday books after completing their craft project.

         Happy Holidays!
