Here is a super simple Reindeer Christmas card to make with kids.
With just a few basic supplies, kids can make this cute reindeer card that they can hand out to friends and families. It comes with a printable template to cut out and stick together.
This is especially great to do with preschoolers, kindergarteners, and young school kids. They will surely be excited to write their Christmas message inside their special handmade card and this is good to work on their writing skills too!
For younger kids, you can cut out the template ahead of making the craft. Kids can also color in the template before cutting it out.

How to make a Reindeer Christmas card
Download and print the reindeer printable. It comes with step-by-step instructions and the reindeer template. You can print out the reindeer template on white A4 cardstock.
Kids can now color in the template if they want to. Otherwise, you can cut out the parts, trace them on colored cardstock, and cut them out after that.
Get all the parts cut out and ready to make the reindeer card. For our card, we traced the parts on brown cardstock using a pencil and cut them out along the pencil lines. We colored the nose using a red marker.
Get the 8-shaped part and fold it in half. Now stick it on the reindeer’s head with the folded part coming on top.
Stick the eyes of the reindeer.
Get the smaller oval shape and stick it on top of the card. (This step is optional).
Let’s stick the two antlers and the big red nose now.
Stick the smaller ear-shapes on the bigger ear-shapes to make two ears. Now, stick these two ears near each of the antlers.
Open the card and write your Christmas message using a marker. To write the message, you may reuse the oval-shaped template (which we used to make the top part of the card) to stick inside the card.
And our cute reindeer Christmas card is ready!
