December 2nd is Rudolph day! We celebrated it a day early at the library today. The craft we did was a simple brown square of paper folded accordian style and stapled at one end. We then had the kids trace their hands on a black sheet of paper, and cut them out. These were the antlers. Add googly eyes, and a red circle nose and you have a cute little reindeer! We also made some reindeer food for the kids to sprinkle on the lawn on Christmas Eve. Last year we used baby food jars, but this year we did plastic baggies. Just layer oats, white granulated sugar, green sanding sugar, red sanding sugar, and I add some Quaker Oatmeal Squares cereal. Add a decorative ribbon, and this cute little poem.
I also made Make-Your-Own reindeer sandwiches. Make a peanut butter sandwich and cut into triangles. Put large pretzels in the top for antlers, and I used raisins for eyes, and dried cranberries for the nose. There weren't any left! I think they were a hit!!
