Pasta Reindeer Christmas Ornament

After all the Diwali and Halloween fun crafting, my daughter and I are gearing up for upcoming winter festivities. My two-year-old is fascinated by the multitude of festivals and customs across the world. Engaging young kids in festive crafts is a great way to teach them about the festival while helping them develop creativity and self-expression. And, as a big bonus, keeping them away from the screen in today's tech world. 

Don't forget to check out the perfect Christmas gift, Snowman Lapel Pin that we made last week and a cute Turkey Puppet craft that we made for Thanksgiving.

Building on our momentum for festive crafting, my daughter and I made these easy and cute Pasta Reindeer Christmas ornaments!

Reindeer is one of the beloved characters in Christmas legends. The lore is that reindeers pull a sleigh through the night sky to help Santa Claus deliver gifts to children on Christmas Eve. Inspired by the book and the movie Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, we created these reindeer ornaments!


HOW TO MAKE REINDEER CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS?


Supplies:

Pipe Cleaner (brown)
Twine/Ribbon
Paint (brown)
Paintbrush
Glue

Behind the scene steps:

1. Paint five pieces of penne pasta brown and let them dry.


2. Glue them together making the shape of reindeer's face as shown below.




3. Cut three pieces of pipe cleaner (two small and one big). Tie the small ones on the big piece making the shape of reindeer's ear as shown below.


4. Glue wiggle eyes and pom-pom for the nose.


5. Attach ears to the face by inserting them in the pasta at both the ends. You can apply a little glue to hold them tight if needed.


6. Tie a thread/ribbon through the pasta to hang the ornament.

And your kid-made pasta reindeer ornaments are ready to adorn your Christmas tree!  Happy Crafting!!
