Reindeer Crafts for Kids

Yarn, bottle caps and egg cartons can be used to create some festive reindeer crafts this season. Here are four ideas.

When it comes to classic holiday characters, do you or your child have a favorite? I’m sure many of you have Santa Claus at the top, or very close to the top of that list, but what about all the other fun movie, story and song characters out there? Across the board on all of those mediums is the reindeer. From Rudolph to the rest of the gang that helps guide Santa’s sleigh, reindeer are icons that go beyond the Christmas season into winter celebrations. This week’s roundup of reindeer crafts is all about those well-known animals.
