Clothespin Reindeer Craft

This clothespin reindeer craft is a wonderful craft for a child to make for the holiday season. It is very easy and only takes a few materials.

Most children (from kindergarten age up) can do all the steps on their own since no cutting is even involved! A pre-schooler may need some help assembling the parts.

A cord can also be added for hanging on the tree if desired. The child's name and the year could also be painted across the popsicle stick back.

Things Needed:

  • 3 clothespins
  • 1 popsicle stick (craft stick)
  • brown paint and paintbrush
  • 1 small red pom-pom (or cut one out of red construction paper)
  • 2 googly eyes
  • 1 small jingle bell
  • Few inches of red, green, gold, or silver ribbon
  • Glue

1. Begin the craft by assembling the body as shown below. Place a drop of glue where the clothespin clamps onto the popsicle stick, on each side, as shown.

3. Next, using the googly eyes, ribbon, jingle bell, and pom-pom, glue on all the facial features. The pom-pom is the reindeer's nose, and can be glued right on the tip end of the craft stick. The eyes can be glued right above the nose. The jingle bell can be threaded onto the ribbon and tied about the reindeer's neck.
