I love arts and crafts. I used to volunteer teach an elementary art class and love sharing tutorials for fun crafts to make with kids.

Rudolph the red nosed reindeer is a favorite of most kids so they, of course, also like to make reindeer crafts.For this article I went on a web search to find reindeer crafts that included a nice photo of the craft project and the site where you can see the directions for making the craft. You'll be happy to know that you can make any of the reindeer projects shown here using the tutorials.

Find the supplies list and tutorial for making the whimsical reindeer shown above, at LIFESTYLE HOW STUFF WORKS.
