Toilet Paper Roll Reindeer Craft
Here’s a guest post from our friends at KidsActivitiesBlog.com for a fun reindeer craft. I can totally see my twins enjoying this cute project! KidsActiviesBlog has a bunch of other fun craft projects for the whole family to enjoy.
- toilet paper rolls
- scrap paper for collars
- pipe cleaners
- item for a red nose
- marker for a mouth
- optional: bells or other decorations for reindeer collars
We first painted the toilet paper rolls brown for the reindeer bodies. Set them aside to dry.
When they are dry; poke two holes in the sides of the toilet paper rolls. Put one pipe cleaner through the hole and twist the two pieces together at the top of the toilet paper roll. You can now shape the antlers in any way you want. We played around and bent ours a few times, Rory really enjoyed bending them all over the place.
Next we added some glue and attach some eyes and nose. (If you are using a big red puff ball, like we did; I recommend using a lot of glue or hot glue!) Draw a smile for a mouth, if wanted. Finally we glued a small strip of paper for a collar. We attached some bells on the collar, we realized that we needed pretty strong glue for this, so I used hot glue. After playing with them for a while, Rory decided she wanted stars instead of bells, so she pulled the bells off.
There are now Reindeers everywhere in our house!
