Here’s an easy and fun Christmas craft for your kids: Hands and Feet Reindeer Prints!

These would be a great memory keeper as well, just like our Handprint Turkey. Will and Leah enjoyed this craft because it gave them a chance to help each other as well as improve their scissor skills. :)

Handprint and Footprint Reindeer Craft

Materials Needed:

White construction paper
Brown construction paper
Red pom poms
Googly eyes


1. Trace one of your child’s feet on to brown construction paper (or let your kids trace each other’s feet!). Cut it out. This will be the reindeer’s face.

2. Trace both of their hands on to the white paper and color with a brown crayon. You can use a different shade of brown if you have it. Cut them out. These will be the reindeer’s antlers. 

3. Let your child glue the wrist part of the handprints to the back of the reindeer’s face. Attach the googly eyes and red pom-pom as a nose. Let dry and display. Have fun!

  1. Beth, that sounds like such a good idea to do with the baby. I should do that with my little 7 month old :)

  2. I love this old favourite! We used to make it every year when I worked in a preschool classroom. I have yet to do it with my 2 year old – thanks for the reminder!
