We all know that Santa is the guy who brings children gifts on Christmas Eve, but Santa isn’t making any deliveries without his trusted team of reindeer. We love making all kinds of Christmas crafts with the kids, but I have always had a love for Santa’s reindeer and reindeer crafts. In fact, I think Burl Ives “One little, two little, three little reindeer…” song floats through my head all December long. While I’m not sure which reindeer is my favourite, I do know that I love making silly reindeer crafts with my kids. Yep, they love Donner, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, et al, too!
I’ve been scouring the internet for all the best reindeer crafts and activities for kids of all ages to make. So, check out this collection of creative and simple reindeer craft ideas, make a craft supply list and have fun making your own team of Santa’s reindeer.
