On the last day before winter break, the 1st graders at Trevor's school had a big craft day. The kids rotated between eight stations, completing two crafts at most of the stations.
Trevor's teacher opted to have the kids skip one of the planned crafts (due to lack of drying time for white glue and fears of glue gun burns) and sent the materials home instead. We changed it up a bit and made our own version. Here's Trevor's Craft Stick Reindeer.
Supplies: 3 craft sticks, brown paint, craft glue, felt, scissors, brown pipe cleaner, wire snips (or scissors you don't care about), googly eyes, a red pom pom, and a paper clip or ornament hook.
Begin by painting the sticks brown. Glue two sticks to form a V, then glue the third stick across the top. Let that dry.
Bend the pipe cleaner into a V, then snip about 1.5 inches off each end. Twist one snipped end around each leg of the V to form the antlers.
