Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, and Blitzen, the flying reindeers leading Santa Claus sleigh will surprise you with a treat everyday 🙂

I know it’s not the time to start the countdown, but if you are willing to do your Advent Calendar by yourself as we did, you will need to prepare for it. Anyways it’s in three days.

So easy and fun to do. A great way to introduce Christmas to your toddler and live the fun of the season everyday. You will need:

  • 25 beige paper (200gsm) not too thick. you decide on the size depending how big you want to make the cone head
  • brown felt to do the antlers, i used approx. quarter meter. If you can’t find felt, use any thick paper to let the antlers stand.
  • 25 red pompoms for the nose
  • 50 wiggling eyes
  • red thread
  • 25 clothspin
  • numbers from 1-24
  • UHU liquid glue, and UHU patafix to fix the clothspins on the wall

how to do reindeerreindeer antlersAs the step by step above picture shows, create a cone very similar to the popcorn one. stick the eyes and nose, better say let your child enjoy sticking them in the right place! Cut the antlers and stick them (i used the UHU liquid glue), make two holes on both sides to insert the red thread. The last thing to do, stick the numbers on the clothspin and attach it to the thread.

Let the countdown begin!
