reindeer ornament is wonderful for children to
make. This makes a great school craft.
The popsicle sticks can be bought in bulk and are very cheap. The only
other things needed are some felt, foam board, or construction paper, a
pair of googly eyes, and some red pom-poms! Each ornament can
be marked with the child's name and year if desired.
Keeping to really simple crafts for preschoolers is key.
If you are working with a class, you may find some children lose their attention quicker than others. This craft is pretty quick to put together, without needed too much eye and hand coordination.
- 3 craft sticks
- 1 large red pom-pom (or you can
circle from construction paper)
- 3 small red
pom-poms (or use construction
- Green felt, foam board, or construction
- Black felt, foam board, or construction
googly eyes (I used 8 mm size)
- Red cord for
- Black marker for writing child's name
Begin the reindeer ornament by placing a drop of
one end of the craft stick and add another one top of it, in a V-shape.
Then, glue one craft stick perpendicular to the V shape,
about an inch from the ends. See photo below for help.
2. Next, glue on the large red pom-pom to the end point of
the triangle, to be the nose. Glue the googly eyes some black
felt. When they are dry cut them out, leaving a black border
around each eye. Then glue the eyes to the reindeer head.

or on the image
below (a new window will open, Adobe Reader is required) or just draw
the holly free-hand. Fold a piece of green felt in thirds, so you only
have to cut out the pattern once to get three holly leaves.
Cut around the pattern carefully.
4. Glue on the leaves to the top craft stick at the side, and
glue the three little red pom-pom glues in the middle. Add a
cord for hanging in the middle, and add on the child's name in black
marker if you wish.
