Kid-made Christmas reindeer cards

Sharing is caring!

With just a handful of craft supplies preschoolers and older kids can make an easy Christmas reindeer card for their teachers, grandparents or other special people in their life.

Christmas reindeer cards preschoolers and older kids can make on their own

I thought it would be nice for the boys to make Christmas cards for their teachers this year. This is how the reindeer cards were born.

I did my best to come up with a very easy idea to get my preschooler boys excited and eager for some crafting.

We only used a handful of craft supplies that you most probably already have in your household. If not, you can grab them during a visit to the craft store. Or you replace any of the three craft supplies with other material you have at hand.

Variations of the Christmas reindeer card

  • Use a red sticker for the nose 
  • Draw or paint the nose
  • Use a red dot marker to make the nose
  • Draw the eyes
  • Use sticker eyes instead of googly eyes
  • Draw the antlers with a brown marker or pencil
  • Use brown yarn instead of the pipe cleaners

How to make a reindeer Christmas card

You can replace the regular googly eyes with peel and stick wiggly eyes (to make it really easy for young kids) or colored googly eyes, if you want to add a bit more color to the Christmas card.

Reindeer cards: kid-made Christmas cards

Step 1: Make two little holes at the top of the card.

Step 2: Glue the eyes on the card. I made little marks with a pencil on the card to make it easier for the boys to know exactly where the eyes and nose should go.

Step 3: Glue the nose under the eyes.

Step 4: Slide a brown pipe cleaner through the holes you made at the beginning. Cut the pipe cleaner and create the antlers.

Step 5: Glue the antlers to the card. If you’re using regular school glue or glue stick, you need to place a book or two on top of the card and give it a little time for the antlers to get secured on the card. If kids run low on patience, mom can step in with her hot glue gun.
