My Easy Reindeer Name Craft Printable
You’re going to love this fun new reindeer name craft! Can you remember the names of all Santa’s reindeer? Many of us learned their names from the popular Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer song.
But do you recall how you learned to recognize and spell your own name? It’s probably the first printed word you learned.
This December, teach your preschoolers to develop that same name recognition with the help of Santa’s reindeer and my printable Reindeer Name Craft.
With this easy reindeer name craft printable, you’ll get a cute reindeer template with antlers and Christmas light bulbs. Preschoolers can write a letter of their name on each holiday light bulb and arrange them in order to practice spelling their own names on the antlers of Santa’s reindeer.
You can print the template in bright holiday colors or keep it in black and white so your preschoolers can develop fine motor skills and creativity by coloring their own reindeer.
Reindeer Christmas Craft Ideas
I love the idea of using this cute reindeer Christmas craft for holiday decorations too. These little reindeer will look so festive decorating your holiday bulletin board or classroom door this December.
Teachers and parents can use this reindeer craft to decorate their homes and classrooms too. Instead of writing student names on each reindeer name craft, add the names of Santa’s reindeer for an adorable holiday decoration that will get everyone talking.
This reindeer name craft would be a fun way to engage little hands and practice fine motor skills after holiday storytime too.
Try reading some of my favorite reindeer books aloud to your preschoolers for more early literacy practice in the classroom and at home this December.
