These whimsical little reindeer make perfect gifts for anyone. (If you give gifts to your Child's School Teacher for Christmas don't forget their Sunday School and their Nursery Teachers as well.) They can serve as place card holders for a holiday table, party favors, or give a large reindeer as a gift,filled with the recipients favorite candy!They are an easy and inexpensive craft for classrooms or scout troops.

You'll Need: ScissorsCraft glue, glue stick or glue dotsTerracotta clay pots; 2"-5"Plastic eyesRed pom-poms (glitter pom-poms are a fun addition!)Three shades of brown craft foam, cardstock paper or construction paper;we combined all three to make our reindeer family.

parts pictured for the large reindeer

2 antlers

2 large ears

2 small ears

2 eyes

one red nose

How to Make It: First, with one shade of brown, cut the antlers to match the size of your pot. If you are making the larger reindeer, use a child's handprint as pattern. Then, cut the ears with the other brown. We used a lighter shade of brown to add yet another layer to the ears but that's not necessary.Attach they ears to the back of the pot. Then add the antlers. Glue the eyes and nose the front. Fill the pot with candy, nuts or other goodies. It's that simple!
