I’m sure that at this time of year, all Santa’s reindeer are excited about Christmas. In my imagination, the littlest reindeer are also anticipating receiving gifts, which have them jumping and tumbling with joy.
So, to share this mental image, I’ve made a reindeer pattern, so you can make a classroom display of “North Pole Reindeer Antics.”
- White construction paper or card stock
- Reindeer images (Pattern)
- Crayons, colored pencils, paint or colored markers
- Glue: white or glue sticks or glue dots
- Optional: Glitter glue, glitter, sequins, ribbon bows, tiny buttons, stars, etc.
1. Make copies of reindeer images on white construction paper or card stock (card stock would be best)
2. Color the reverse side of the construction paper or card stock with the color you want your reindeer to be. The reason for this will become apparent after you’ve colored the image and attach the front and back parts of the reindeer.
3. Color the reindeer. Don’t color the areas that you want to be white.
4. Cut out the reindeer parts, fronts and backs.
5. Cut a strip of paper (1”x3”) and accordion pleat.
6. Glue one end of the strip to the front of the reindeer, and the other end to the rear of the reindeer. Try to think of different ways to assemble the reindeer so it looks like they are having fun.
7. Use glue and glitter or glitter glue and other tiny items to fancy up the reindeer.
