Print on fluro paper (Astro Brights) and use black market for this super effective look.

Steps for Creating Funky Reindeer Craft

  1. Download our [FREE] Fun Reindeer Craft Template and print it on white (or colored) paper.
  2. Trace the outline of the reindeer with a black marker.
  3. Choose either straight lines in each section or different patterns. I would suggest lead pencil first and then when the artist is happy, they can go over their lines with a black marker.
  4. Then, color in the reindeer’s sunglasses and Santa hat. The brighter the better! You may like to print these on colored paper, too.
  5. Cut out the sunglasses, Santa hat, and the Reindeer.
  6. Glue the Reindeer onto construction paper.
  7. Then, glue the sunglasses and Santa hat over the top.
  8. Display and admire!
