HAND REINDEER
Here is what you will need:

Tan felt square bigger than your hand
Cereal box cardboard
Red yarn
Brown poster paint
Paintbrush
Red and black construction paper scraps
White glue
Brown pipe cleaner
Hole punch and Scissors

Step 1: Glue the tan felt square to the print side of the cardboard cut from a cereal box.Place heavy weights, like books, on both sides of the cardboard so it dries flat.
Step2: Paint the palm side of your hand brown. spread your thumb and fingers out and carefully print your hand on the felt. Let the hand print dry.

Step3:Cut the hand print out. The four fingers will be the reindeer legs and the thumb will be the head. Poke a hole at the base of the thumb and string a piece of brown pipe cleaner through for the antlers. Twist the two ends of the pipe cleaner around each other to hold them in place. Punch out an eye from black paper and a nose from red paper and glue them in place.

Step 4: Tie a red yarn bow around the neck. Punch a hole at the top of the reindeer and sting a piece of red yarn through it. Tie the two ends together to make a hanger.

Write a Christmas message on the back of your reindeer and give it to someone special for Christmas.
