This is a great craft to do with your child, grandchild or when babysitting! The child can use the bag to give a Christmas gift to a special someone in their lives.
Paper bag (any size works)
Heavy brown construction paper, felt or foam that is heavy enough to stand up
Craft eyes (or construction paper)
Glitter or bells
Red pom pom
Fold top of the bag approximately three-quarters down and cut a triangular shape to make the face of the reindeer. Use the part you cut off to make ears; glue them on behind the flap.
Cut antlers from the construction paper, felt or foam, and glue them under the fold of the bag.
Use the same material used for the antlers and cut two circles. Glue them near the top of the bag. On top of the circles, glue on craft eyes, or make eyes by glueing on white circles with smaller black or brown circles on top.
Glue red ribbon near the bottom of the bag to make a collar, then add bells or glitter to decorate.
Glue on a red pom pom for the nose.
