5 to 10s
A great handmade addition to your Christmas tree.
: 30 minutes
: 5-10's, Over 10's
2 wooden pegs
Glue and/or double-sided sticky-tape
Tissue paper (red and white)
Use strong glue or double-sided sticky-tape to stick your two pegs together as shown below.
Cut out a small oval-shaped piece of paper and draw some eyes on it.
Glue the paper to the bottom half of one of the pegs so that it covers the metal bar.
If you have some handy, small goggle-eyes are effective too
Attach a small ball of scrunched up red tissue paper for the nose.
The red is for Rudolf, but if you want to make more reindeer, you may want to do brown or black noses for the others
Attach a ball of white tissue paper to the back of the other peg for the tail.
Cut out a piece of ribbon around 11 centimetres long (a little clear nail polish along the edges should prevent it fraying if needed).
Stick the ribbon over the top of the back peg as demonstrated below, to create the reindeer body.
If you can't find ribbon the same width as the peg, you can use paper or material here instead
You can also turn the second peg on its side so that the reindeer is turning to look at you
Thread a piece of string through one of the holes on the first peg so you can add Rudolf to your Christmas tree.
