Directions:

Grab your kids and watch and craft along with us: Rudolf the Reindeer Footprint Craft Tutorial or continue reading the directions below.

To make my kid’s footprints I had them sit in a kids chair because they are tall enough to reach the floor with their feet. I also had plenty of baby wipes and paper towels on hand.

Paint one foot brown. Make sure to get enough paint on your child’s foot so that when you place it on the paper it makes a good print. Have your child place their foot on the paper with the heel towards the middle and the toes toward the outside of their paper. When their foot is on the paper gently press each toe down to make sure the paint makes contact with the paper. I also like place my hand on the top of their foot to keep it from wiggling or slipping.

 

Next paint the other foot brown and have them do the same thing with their foot but on the opposite side and directions. Their feet should form a “V” shape. Let the footprints dry.

Next have your children decorate their footprints to turn them into Reindeer (this is when the magic happens :).

On their footprints between the two balls of their feet (the front part of their foot) have them draw a line to make the top of the Rudolf’s head. Next have them make a small curved line at the bottom of their footprints to make Rudolf’s mouth.

In the middle of the footprints is Rudolf’s face. Have them draw two large eyes in the middle of Rudolf’s face and glue a nose at the top of their heels. They can be done crafting or you can keep on going.

Cut Rudolf out and glue him to your backround paper (as you can hear in the video–this is a perfect time to sing your own rendition of Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer).

The kids decided to decorate their paper with hole reinforcer “snow balls.” Didn’t they turn out great! I never thought Rudolf looked so cute until now–lol.
