Yesterday I shared my idea for a Paper Plate Angel. Today, I’m sharing a Paper Plate Reindeer, which also incorporates a paper plate and handprints. It takes just a few minutes to make and is a great holiday project for a preschool classroom or your little homeschooler.
- a white paper plate
- scraps of construction paper
- markers, crayons, or paints
- Color a paper plate brown. This will be the background color for your reindeer’s face.
- Next, fold both sides of the paper plate up, and color the folded portion a different shade of brown.
- Glue eyes and a nose to your reindeer. You can use wiggly eyes, but I liked the appearance of large paper eyes. A fun idea may be to assign one child in a class to make Rudolph while the other children make regular reindeer.
- Trace handprints out of construction paper (we used beige), cut them out, and glue to the top of the head as antlers. Your reindeer is now complete!
