Cut out the Hands
The first step to making this cute reindeer is to trace your children’s handprints on brown cardstock. Brown construction paper will work, but it won’t hold up as well and tend to flop over.
After you have the handprints cut out you will glue them to the back of the paper bag. Make sure to flip them over so the side you traced is facing backwards so we can’t see any of the tracing on your cute reindeer!
Time to Decorate!
After you have the handprints glued on attach your Googly Eyes to the front. We used a size medium Googly Eye for our craft.
After the eyes are attached cut a strip of red cardstock the same width as the paper bag. Glue the red strip to the bag.
Then cut three yellow circles out of yellow cardstock. Glue the yellow circles along the red strip.
