Reindeer Handprint Craft Christmas Card


This reindeer Christmas card is really cute, and so easy for your little ones to make.


You’ll need:

  • Brown paint
  • Red paint
  • Glue
  • Sheets of card in various colours
  • Small red pom-poms
  • Black marker




Fold a sheet of card in half.

Put some of the brown paint onto a plate, and dip your little one’s hand in.

You might need to help them print their hand onto the card.

Paint a red dot at the end of your child’s palm print, then glue on top of the red dot.

Stick on the red pom-pom.

Use the black marker to add eyes, a mouth, and any other details you want to add in.


Family Handprint Christmas Tree


This is a Christmas handprint craft for the whole family to do together. It’s really easy, and it looks adorable when it’s finished.


You’ll need:

  • Card in various greens
  • Markers
  • Glitter and glue, or glitter glue
  • Ribbon or string
  • White card
  • Scissors




Have every member of the family choose some green card.

Draw around their hands and cut them out.

Use a large sheet of white card to cut out a Christmas tree shape.

Cut out some circles in different sizes.

As you layer the cut-out hands over the Christmas tree, you can have your little ones decorate the circles with markers and glitter, turning them into baubles.

You can use the ribbon to glue on some ‘tinsel’, and you can use it to make a loop on the top so you can hang it up.


Reindeer Frame


This cute Christmas handprint craft could be turned into a cute gift for pre-school teachers or grandparents.


You’ll need:

  • Photo frame
  • White card
  • Brown paint
  • Red paint
  • Red pom-pom
  • Glue
  • Black marker
  • Ribbon

Paint the frame with brown paint.

Put some more of the brown paint onto a plate and help your little one cover their hands in paint.

Help your little one print their hands onto the white card.

When the paint has dried, cut out around both prints and attach them to the top of the frame. These will be antlers.

Glue on googly eyes.

You can paint on a red nose, or glue on a red pom-pom.

Tie a length of ribbon into a bow and glue the bow onto the top.

Add in a cute photo of your little one, and it’s a wonderful gift.
