Easy instructions on how to keep your kids happy this Christmas by making their own adorable Rudolph out of craft foam or paper - red nose and all! For the free templates for this activity and more festive foam friends you can download the takeaway PDF at the bottom of this page!
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.
Turn the HEAD over and glue the ANTLERS onto the back of it, like this.
Turn the HEAD over and glue a pair of Googly eyes onto Rudolph's face.
Now, glue the HEAD onto the BODY and give him a big, round, red nose. It's not Rudolph without his nose so bright!
Glue the lighter BELLY onto the BODY, and glue an ARM on either side.
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.
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.
