Here’s a Christmas ornament craft for kids that can be done in less than 10 minutes. (But it will take longer if you want to take the optional step of painting your clothespin.)
– 2 old-fashioned wooden clothespins
– 3 small craft sticks
– 2 googly eyes
– 1 red pom pom
– (optional) brown paint
Glue two clothespins on top of each other to form the body. (Optional: If you want to paint the body brown, do this first and let the clothespins dry before you continue.)
Glue two of the small craft sticks together in a V shape and then glue the third stick horizontally across the other two, about 1/3 of the way from the top.
Attach the eyes with glue and then stick the pom pom on to create the nose.
That’s it! You’ve now completed your clothespin reindeer. To hang it on the tree, attach a red ribbon or use a large ornament hook around the cross stick.
4. (Optional) Tie a red ribbon around the reindeer to turn it into a Christmas tree ornament.
