Red-nosed Reindeer

View all articles

Today I want to offer you, little artist, a DIY of an animal you can often find in Christmas tales.

Let me give you a hint, he has a red nose!

Can you guess what animal it is?

Yes, it’s Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer!

Do you know how many reindeer Santa has?

He has nine! Can you name some of them? 


  • A quarter of a beige construction paper (14 cm/11 cm)
  • Brown construction paper
  • White cardboard
  • Cotton balls
  • Black marker, red marker
  • Googly eyes (optional)
  • A glue stick and scissors


  • Fold the beige construction paper lengthwise.
  • Cut it in half.
  • Fold one of the halves widthwise.
  • Cut a “U” shape in the folded half.


  • Now you have to fold the top parts of the “U” to make the paws.

          *Look closely at the picture


  • Use your black marker to colour the end of each paw.
  • Glue each paw on your white cardboard, like on the picture.


  • Take the other piece of beige construction paper, roll it and tape it to the back (the head).
  • Cut a tail shape and two antlers in your brown construction paper.
  • Glue the tail to the back and the antlers on the head
  • Add the googly eyes and draw a red nose.


You can now glue the cotton balls on your white cardboard to make it look like snow.

I think my reindeer is beautiful, and I am sure yours is too! 


I hope you had fun making this activity with me!

Come back soon!
