Happy Monday! I’m back for our Virtual Book Club for Kids and this week’s theme is reindeer! We’re reading Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and the Virtual Book Club co-hosts are sharing fun reindeer themed activities to go along with the story. Be sure to scroll down after reading this post for more activities based on this week’s theme! This week I’m sharing a paper shapes reindeer that is perfect for keeping younger kids busy on cold winter afternoons. It’s similar to my paper shapes train activity. If you haven’t joined our weekly virtual book club for kids you can join here. You’ll gain access to future book club books, themes, and craft supply lists. Plus you can share your own book themed activities in the group!
This Week’s Virtual Book Club Book
- Brown construction paper
- White construction paper
- Red construction paper
- Black construction paper
- Glue (optional)
Prep for the activity by cutting the following shapes from construction paper:
- Large brown triangle for the reindeer face. We made our triangle sides about 8″ x 8″ x 8″ in size.
- Two white circles for the eyes.
- Two smaller black circles for the eyes.
- One red oval for the nose.
- Six narrow rectangles for the antlers. Each rectangle should be about 1″ x 4″ in size.
Set all the cut pieces of paper on a table and let your child piece together a reindeer. If you’re doing this activity with a class of children they can each assemble their own reindeer with the help of a teacher’s instructions. Talk about each shape as you guide them through assembling their reindeer. Hang the reindeer on your refrigerator at home or around your classroom for festive holiday decorations! If you’re looking for more reindeer books I would love for you to visit my Reindeer Books for Kids post.
