  • paper plate – one paper plate will make two rocking reindeer
  • brown paint
  • large googly eyes
  • red pom pom
  • paint brush
  • dark brown construction paper
  • glue

If you’re not a fan of googly eyes, wiggle eye stickers are a great alternative.

A black marker can be used too, if you want to draw mouth on your reindeer.

Paint the paper plate with brown paint.

Fold it in half to get the line to cut along.

Cut the paper plate in half.

Fold into a cone. Unfold and apply glue on one end.

Fold together into a cone again.

Hold together for the glue to set (I use a clothespin to hold it together so I can move onto next steps). Older kids can use a stapler.

Glue on two googly eyes and a red pom pom for the nose.

Cut out antlers out of brown construction paper.

Glue the antlers on your Rocking Paper Plate Reindeer.
