Snow Day Reindeer Art Project

December 12, 2016

We were blessed with two storm days this week! On the first day, I made a lofty check-list of all of the items we were going to accomplish. Although an art project with the boys made the list, it didn’t happen until our second snow day.

Jude (with the help of his teachers) made an adorable reindeer at school and being he was already a seasoned pro, we decided to make another one!

Supplies:
Brown paint
Paper
Glue gun
Pipe-cleaners
Red puffy ball
Wiggle eyes

Cost:
Less than $5 (I used a Michael’s giftcard to save 40% off on this pack)

Steps:
1. (Optional) Mix the paint
I wanted to make our paint a LITTLE lighter as to not make it look like pure poop.

2. Paint the feet


3. Press the feet onto your canvas


4. Make and attach the antlers



5. Add the nose


6. Glue on the eyes


Jude thought it was necessary to take a snack break mid-project. Thankfully, we made a few extra prints.

I realized my dad’s birthday was coming up and as an avid hunter, we knew this would be a perfect homemade gift.

Ta-Da!
