Paint and decorate a paper plate into an easy Christmas reindeer.
Paint the bottom side of a small paper plate with brown tempera or poster paint. Set the painted plate aside to dry.
Use a pencil to trace the outline of your right and left hands on dark brown or black construction paper.
Cut out both handprints.
Once your paper plate is completely dry, flip it over so that the plate's unpainted side is facing up.
Glue or tape the pair of handprint antlers, thumbs facing each other, at the top edge of the plate.
Flip the plate over so that the painted side is now facing up. Glue a pair of wiggle eyes and a pom-pom nose.
Draw a mouth using a black marker or crayon.
Glue some accents like a bow below the reindeer's face or a Christmas hat in between the antlers.
Tape a string at the back of the plate so you can hang your cute paper plate reindeer as a fun holiday decoration.
Transform your paper plate reindeer into a stick puppet or mask by gluing a wooden dowel at the back. You can also glue two craft sticks end-to-end to make a long handle like I did.
