Disclosure: This is a sponsored post as a participant in the Walmart Moms Program.kids craft red nose reindeer
One of my favorite things to do with the kiddos is holiday crafts. This year we made quite a few of our own ornaments including this cute guy! Since the famous Red Nose Reindeer turned 50 this year I thought this would be a great ornament to celebrate the anniversary!

Not only was this craft easy to make but so fun to do as a family project. We’ve considered making a reindeer family or even all of Santa’s famous reindeer. Wouldn’t that make a cute Christmas tree theme?

Make these ornaments for your tree or to giveaway!

Here is a quick video tutorial that shows you how I created our first reindeer!
