Reindeer Handprint Craft


Here is an easy last minute holiday craft that is perfect gift for grandparents.  Who doesn’t love little handprints?

Step 1: Paint your little one’s hand with brown (washable!) paint and make two handprints at the top of the paper.   Then immediately wash those hands!


Step 2:  Trace your kiddo’s foot on brown paper and cut out.  Then glue between the handprints (with the heel at te bottom of the page.)


Step 3: Cut out one red circle and two white circles.  Draw smaller black circles on the white paper to make eyes.  Glue on the brown paper to make eyes and nose.



I did this reindeer with my two-year-old.  I did all the cutting and she did the gluing.  Older kids can do the cutting, too.  My four year old wanted to draw her eyes on with marker instead of using white paper.


  • red, green, brown, and white construction paper
  • scissors
  • glue stick
  • brown paint
  • paintbrush
  • black marker

Time investment: 10 minutes

Difficulty:  Easy as long as you can keep those brown handprints on the paper and not around your house!
