I saw this double handprint Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer craft on Pinterest from Reading Confetti and knew that I had to make one with my little guy- he loves reindeer! Here is our take on it, be sure to check her's out too since it is a little different.
How to make the Double Handprint Rudolph Craft
- black, brown, and white paint
- red pom pom
- construction paper
- jingle bell
My son painted his left hand with brown paint and pressed it upside-down on the paper. Then, I painted his right palm and thumb (this will be the ear) with the same brown color and his fingers a darker brown color (these will be the antlers). I pressed it on the paper right-side up next to the upside-down handprint.
Set it aside and let dry. It should like somewhat like the photo above.
Make a white thumbprint where you would like the eye to be and also one inside the ear. Cut & glue a piece of black construction paper (felt would be cute too!) where the 2 palms meet to make a collar.
Glue on a jingle bell at the end of it. I wanted 3 jingle bells on the collar but my son insisted that he only have one. Glue a red pom-pom on for the nose. Alternatively, you could make a red thumbprint for the nose.
After the white paint has dried, make a black fingerprint inside the white thumbprint. Draw on a black smile and hooves.
