This clothespin reindeer craft is a fun way for kids to take ordinary household articles and make something cool for the Christmas season.

What you'll need

  • 3 clothespins
  • 7mm wiggle eyes
  • Red small pom-pom
  • White small pom-pom
  • Tacky glue
  • Ribbon
Helpful Tip:

Tacky Glue is better for crafts than hot glue, which kids can easily get hurt using; it's thicker and tackier than Elmer's Glue and dries quickly.

How to make it

  1. Glue two clothespins together at the head (the pinchy end for spring-style clothespins, the knobby end for the peg-style) with the long ends pointing the same direction. These will form the body and legs of the reindeer.

  2. Glue the third clothespin to the other two, pointing the opposite direction. This forms the head and antlers of your reindeer.

  3. Glue the eyes to the upward-pointing pin and glue the red pompom under the eyes to form the nose. Glue the white pompom to the other end to form the tail.
