I’m loving this rudolph craft! Is it too early for Christmas crafting? I hope not, because I’m all in.
This super cute activity is great for older kids to do on their own or for the little ones with supervision and a little extra help. Even if the craft we’re doing is a little advanced for my kids, I still like doing it because I like to at least keep crafting in the atmosphere.
To make this rudolph craft, here’s what you need:
- An empty baby food jar
- Brown tempera paint
- Googley eyes
- Something red for the nose (we used a little foam circle but a red pom pom would work great, too)
- A brown pipe cleaner
- Hot glue and gun (any other glue will work as well but I like hot glue because it’s quick and I don’t have to hold things in place until it dries)
- Red string or yarn (optional)
And now, onto the directions:
- Take the label off of your baby food jar and clean off the residue.
- Poor a bit of brown tempera paint into the jar and hold it upside down to get the paint to cover the whole thing. (We also added in a little glitter!)
- Let the jar sit upside down on a towel so the excess comes out.
- Then, use the same brown paint to paint the lid.
- Glue on your antlers, eyeballs and nose. (the jar stays in the upside down position)
- Put the lid back on and wrap a red string or piece of yarn around the bottom as a scar. (optional)
