Reindeer Paper Crafts

Reindeer paper crafts are a fun and easy way to get into the holiday spirit. All you need is some construction paper or other brown paper, scissors, and glue or glitter glue. 

You can even make your very own herd of reindeer.

Add some eyes and a nose to your reindeer. You can use buttons, pom-poms, or even googly eyes.

Use whichever template works best for the fine motor skills of the kiddos completing the craft.

Bigger kids will have better success with the details of the large reindeer; little ones might need a bit more help (i.e, toddlers,  kindergarten kids, etc.).

What are Reindeer

Use craft time to teach the kids a little more about reindeer!

Reindeer are a species of deer that are native to the Arctic regions of Europe, Asia, and North America. There are an estimated 2 million to 3 million reindeer in the world. 

The most populous populations are found in Norway, Finland, Sweden, and Russia. Reindeer have been domesticated by humans for centuries and are used for their meat, milk, fur, and antlers.

Reindeer are well-suited to life in the frigid Arctic tundra. They have thick fur coats that protect them from the cold weather and they can also dig through snow to find food. 

Reindeer are herbivores and their diet consists of plants like mosses, lichens, grasses, and shrubs. In the winter months, when food is scarce, they may also eat bark or twigs from trees.

Printable Reindeer Craft Template

To use as templates, print on a piece of white printer paper to better see the outline of the reindeer / reindeer’s head.  

Trace the template onto cardstock or construction paper using pencils, black marker, colored markers, crayons, or whatever works for your particular craft. 

Cut out the reindeer template and complete your paper reindeer craft of choice!
