Or Follow These Step by Step Instructions
Fold a letter or A4 sized sheet of brown construction paper in half.
Cut off about 1/4 off to make the reindeer body shorter (no harm in letting it longer though).
Cut out a U shape (don’t cut into the side with the fold).
Round the edges on one or both sides.
Cut a head shape from the scrap paper (from the U shape).
Apply glue on the body – one end…
And glue on the head.
Stick on or draw the eyes.
Cut nose from red paper (or dark brown if you are making other reindeer).
Cut ears from scrap paper too as well as the tail.
Glue on tail and ears.
Cut antlers from dark brown construction paper.
And glue them on the head.
All done! You have made your super simple reindeer paper craft.
Now depending on the size and weight of the paper the reindeer you might need to fold the legs at the bottom to make it stand, but using the size we used it should stand on it’s own as it is.
