How to Make Reindeer Droppings Gift
Step 1: Glue two brown pom poms where the eyes will go and one for the mouth.
Step 2: Glue on a red nose and two googly eyes.
Step 3: Cut two triangles out of the brown paper to be used for the ears. Fold too of the corners into the center and glue so they stay.
Step 4: Cut a brown fuzzy stick into thirds. Cut one of those in half again. Wrap the shorter sticks around the longer one and arrange to make the antlers.
Step 5: Glue the antlers on about the eyes and then glue the ears right on top of that.
Step 6: Print off your free Reindeer Droppings tag and punch a hole in the corner. Tie a ribbon around the reindeer and thread the tag through and tie on a jingle bell if you want.
And you are done!
You can make these with any box or bag of chocolate candy for a fun and yummy boy-approved Christmas treat.
