Thumbprint Reindeer

Use your thumbs and some paint to honour Santa’s helpers!
Who would Santa Claus be without his brave elfish helpers and his faithful reindeer friends assisting him during the most difficult journey around the world on Christmas night? The effigies of Santa are common, we cut them out, knit them or Bake them. But we tend to forget about those who share the Christmas duties with him.

That’s why I’d like to encourage you to make a Thumbprint Reindeer with your kids. ‘Little Bit Funky’ presents a lovely reindeer gang, I bet you will be left some spare plain balls to make your own paintings on them.

The activity is great fun for kids to pass the time while waiting for the real Santa to come ;) If you have other ingenious Christmas ideas share them with us!
