Reindeer Handprint Christmas Card

Every year when we pull out our Christmas tree ornaments I get giddy over this adorable reindeer ornament we made years ago. Handprint keepsakes are a forever treasure for Mom’s, Dad’s and Grandparents. So this year we recreated the ornament into this cute reindeer handprint Christmas card that will delight all of your loved ones this holiday season. Not only will kids love helping you making it but they can personalize a message inside the card that Grandma and Grandpa will treasure forever.

1. Print out the reindeer face template and cut it out. Fold your light brown cardstock in half and trace the reindeer face template onto your paper with the top of the reindeer head at the fold of your paper, untraced. Now cut out the head. You should have a card that opens and closes.

2. Trace both of your child’s hands on your dark brown cardstock. Cut them out.

3. Add glue to the bottom of each of the handprints and glue them onto the back of the reindeer face at the top. Then glue googly eyes onto your reindeer handprint Christmas card. Next, glue your sparkly red pom reindeer nose onto your reindeer. (We used a hot glue gun to glue on the red nose.)

4. Use a black marker to draw a big smile on your reindeer.
