Wobbly Head Reindeers!

To make these you will need the following:

How to make a wobbly head reindeer:

  1. Cut out a cup and a cone from an egg box. You might need an adult to help with this.
  2. Paint both pieces brown and leave to dry
  3. Cut 2 ears from brown foam
  4. Cut 2 antlers from cream foam
  5. Glue on the red pom pom nose
  6. Glue the googly eyes onto either side of the nose
  7. Glue the foam ears to either side of the head
  8. Stick the foam antlers to the top of the reindeer head
  9. Paint on a mouth using the white paint and a thin paintbrush
  10. Finally, put the reindeer heads on the cone and they will wobble when tapped!

Alternatives:

Why not try adding different expressions to each reindeer to give them each a different personality

For extra decoration add some jingle bells to the reindeer by threading them onto ribbon/string  around the reindeer’s neck
