Step 1:

Start by cutting out the pieces of the reindeer using soft craft foam or stiff paper. You'll need one BODY, BELLY, HEAD, NOSE and two ANTLERS and ARMS.

Step 2:

Turn the HEAD over and glue the ANTLERS onto the back of it, like this.

Step 3:

Turn the HEAD over and glue a pair of Googly eyes onto Rudolph's face.

Step 4:

Now, glue the HEAD onto the BODY and give him a big, round, red nose. It's not Rudolph without his nose so bright!
Step

Step 5:

Glue the lighter BELLY onto the BODY, and glue an ARM on either side.
Step

Step 6:

Now that Rudolph is nearly done, it's time to dress him. Take two pipe cleaners and twirl them tightly around each other like this.
Step

Step 7:

Twist the scarf together like this, leaving the end free. Use a little craft glue to blue a bobble onto the end of the scarf.
Step

Step 8:

Now glue the scarf around Rudolph's neck. Congratulations! You're all done. Rudolph is complete, red nose and all and is ready to lead Santa's sleigh this Christmas. Below you will find a downloadable PDF for this activity as well as 3 other foam friends!
