Craft Stick Reindeer

It’s that time of year again! Christmas is almost here and we’ve been creating fun holiday crafts for the classroom. The Craft Stick Reindeer is a popular holiday craft that requires very little prep work and uses materials that you may already have in the classroom.

Craft Stick Reindeer Steps

• 2 ½ Craft Sticks
• Brown Paint
• Paintbrush
• Small Red Pompon
• 2 Plastic Wiggly Eyes
• Glue
• 2 Brown Pipe Cleaners (optional)


1. Paint the craft sticks brown.
2. Once the paint is dry, glue the two long sticks together to make a V.
3. Glue on the half stick to make an upside down A.
4. Glue on the two wiggly eyes and the pompon for the nose.
5. Attach a pipe cleaner on both ends of the upside down A.

More Ideas
• Instead of using craft sticks, you could make the reindeer out of small twigs.
• Turn your craft stick reindeer into a Christmas ornament by tying brown yarn where the sticks meet and tie a bow at the top.
• If you would like your craft stick reindeer to have a body, cut an oval and two short legs (one in front, and one in back) from a brown paper bag or brown construction paper.
