|Reindeer Antlers by Mia, Age 3 1/2|
- brown construction paper
- clear tape
- glue (I like Aleene's Tacky Glue)
- 2 craft sticks
- red crayon (colored pencil/marker)
- 2 googly eyes
- pom pom
- paper trimmer (or scissors)
- Using a paper trimmer (or scissors) cut brown construction paper into two strips about 3 inches wide. Wrap paper around child's head to get an approximate measure and then tape the strips together.
- On brown construction paper (or another color if you wish), trace child's right hand twice and cut out hand prints. Do the same with child's left hand.
- Glue both right hand prints together on either side of a craft stick. Repeat with left hand prints. (This will give the antlers more support, and using double-sided hand prints helps conceal the craft stick.) Glue craft sticks inside of the paper head band on opposite sides. Use some extra tape to help secure the craft sticks.
- If desired, add a face to your reindeer antlers head band by using two googly eyes, a pom pom nose (Mia chose pink, but you might want to use red for Rudolph's nose), and a mouth (Mia used a red crayon.)
- Once all glue is dry, wear your reindeer antlers.
