Poke two holes in the bottom of the bowl—one hole for each penguin.

Place the bowl upside down, and put the end of the pipe cleaner into the bowl.

Now cover the bowl with cotton balls to make it look like snow. You can apply glue to the bowl to add cotton balls easily.

This is another cutest thing on the list here. Let’s make this adorable reindeer paper plate craft. Look at the nose of Reindeer, and It will help to enhance motor skills and as they lace the nose.

Also, it’s the best item that you can add to the Christmas actives list this year. Moreover, you can add a paint stick to use as a puppet.

What you need

  6. red yarn
  7. brown crayon
  8. school glue
  9. glue stick

Instructions (step by step)

Firstly, color the paper plate with a brown crayon. Also, you can color it with markers.

Now cut a big V shape like a pizza slice from the plate, and that would be the Reindeer’s face.

Then cut two oval shapes out of the other piece, as you can see in the image. These will be the ears.

Let’s glue the oval ears onto the plate and add googly eyes.

Cut out two antlers from the brown sheet and glue them onto the back of it.

Now let’s make its nose, cut a big red circle from the red paper. Use a puncher to make holes along the edges, as shown in the picture. Make sure there’s enough extent so the paper doesn’t rip.

Weave the red yarn through the holes, making whichever design you desire. Tie the loose ends to the back.

Use the school glue to attach the nose to the face.

The Reindeer is ready to light Santa’s sleigh!
