Today i’m showng you a super easy (and super cute!) paper tube Rudolph Christmas Craft that will get the kids into the festive spirit!
As part of the preparation for our Rudolf’s, we needed twigs and not just any old twig.
We needed “antler-esque” twigs and when I mentioned this to my eldest daughter I initially received that ‘Mum, are you crazy look?’
But, we had the best time and spent an entire afternoon rumaging around the autumnal foliage seaching for twigs and grading their antler potentional.
We must have looked a little crazy to everyone else in the park as my kids were running around, with leaves thrown everywhere!
It must have looked really fun, as a few other kids joined in!
Can you image doing this with an entire toddler or preschool group?

Paper Tube – Toilet Roll/Kitchen Roll
Let’s Make It!
Start with a trip to the local park or woods and have a blast searching for antler twigs!
For very young children, it might be helpful to show them some pictures of reindeers and a Rudolf.
Next, paint the paper tube brown.
Instead of using brown paint, try encouraging the kiddies to do some colour mixing.
In my experience, kids seldom have problems making brown!
Tape the twigs into the inside of the paper tube.
Very young children may find this a little tricky to do themselves.
Finish off by sticking the googley eyes and pom-pom onto the paper tube to create a face!
And that’s it!
Easy peasy, right?
This Rudolph Christmas Craft is perfect for toddlers and preschoolers, and if you’re planning on a group activity. then this is one to add to the list!
