My son painted his left hand with brown paint and pressed it upside-down on the paper. Then I painted his right palm & thumb (this will be the ear) with the same brown color and his fingers a darker brown color (these will be the antlers). I pressed it on the paper right-side up next to the upside-down handprint. Set it aside and let dry.
It should like somewhat like the photo above.
Make a white thumbprint where you would like the eye to be and also one inside the ear. Cut & glue a piece of black construction paper (felt would be cute too!) where the 2 palms meet to make a collar. Glue on a jingle bell at the end of it. I wanted 3 jingle bells on the collar but my son insisted that he only have one. Glue a red pom-pom on for the nose. Alternatively, you could make a red thumbprint for the nose.
After the white paint has dried, make a black fingerprint inside the white thumbprint. Draw on a black smile and hooves.
I am linking up to these ongoing parties!
