Reindeer Games

In desperate attempt to entertain my busy baby indoors, I decided it was time for another holiday craft. 
We started by tracing Barrett's hands on black construction paper.  If your baby is as wiggly as mine, you can cheat and trace one actual hand and just cut out the other hand to match.

Then, you trace baby's foot on brown construction paper...I recommend tracing the foot with a sock on.  That way, baby is less likely to scrunch up his toes and rip the paper.

And finally, you add eyes (blue, to match Barrett's eyes, in our case), a red nose, and a smile, and....ta-da!

Your very own reindeer ornament.  Don't forget to add your child's name and age on the back so you can always remember exactly how big baby's hands were this Christmas.

  1. OMG. That is adorable; but how on earth did you get Barrett to sit still for that?
