Crafts: Reindeer Paper Plate

This post contains affiliate links. For more information please see my Terms of Use and Disclosure Policy page. Thank you.



1. Gather your materials.

2. Paint plates brown.

The green pieces are for another craft.

3. Trace child's hands onto the brown construction paper.

4. Draw and cut out the ears.

5. Glue the reindeer ears together.

6. Attach the ears to paper plate. (I used glue to attach everything.  But you could also staple paper items to the plate.)

7. Glue on the pom pom nose and eyes.

8. Display your reindeer.

Resources and Ideas 

There are a lot of different reindeer paper plate and hand print crafts.  Here are a few of my favorites.

A Cupcake for the Teacher  – On Teachers Pay Teachers, she has a Reindeer Games  packet available for sale.

Making Learning Fun  – Here is another version made using different size paper plates.  It is attached with staples. (This site has a lot of resources available for a variety of topics.  I have only scratched the surface myself.) 

How Wee Learn  – There are a variety of paper plate crafts provided with pictures and a link to the original post.  A great resource for last minute crafting ideas.'s Make a Paper Plate Reindeer  – This is the original idea I was using as a guideline for my own craft. has a PDF file available for download as well as the instructions on their page for this craft. 

Or if you wish to still do a reindeer craft but forgo the paper plate, here is a cute toilet paper roll craft from The Resourceful Mama

Here are few cute items to use for the craft, instead of this craft, and to complement this craft.  We have the Rudolph book and our two children love it. Especially when my husband reads it using voices from the television show.
