The other day, I had a random playdate with a couple of my best friend’s daughters. When they come to spend time with me, we always do a craft together. I wanted to do something seasonal, with items I have in my craft closet, so we ended up making these toilet paper roll reindeer.
- One Paper Towel Roll or 1.5 Toilet Paper Rolls per Reindeer
- Sticks and Twigs
The first thing we did was went on a hunt in the back yard for sticks and twigs. The hunt itself was a fun activity. The three girls spread out and looked for enough twigs to make legs, a neck, and antlers for their reindeer.
Next, we broke the twigs into 2 antlers, four legs, and one neck. The oldest one cut the toilet paper rolls in half so that each girl had one and a half rolls.
We carefully poked holes for each leg, a hole for the neck, and two holes for the antlers.
We simply poked the twigs into each hole to make our reindeer.
Be careful when working with the sticks and twigs, especially with little ones, because I cut my hand a little. They turned out very cute! You can add a little red pompom nose to make Rudolph too!
