- Wood slices for ornaments with twine to make a hanger
- Small red pompoms for nose
- Brown paint (used Melted Chocolate Apple Barrel brand)
- Brown glitter marker (set used: https://www.ooly.com/products/rainbow-sparkle-glitter-markers-set-of-15 ) or you could do a lighter brown paint and darker brown marker
Pour a small amount of paint out, and dip your child’s thumb in it. Place their thumb on the wood slice to make Rudolph’s head.
Add a small dab of glue to the thumbprint on the bottom half of the thumb print, and add the red pompom on top of the glue to make Rudolph’s nose.
Use the marker to put two eyes above the nose.
Then make two lines above the face for the antlers.
Draw smaller lines on a slight upward angle to make the antlers.
Thread the twine through the hole and your ornament is ready to hang!
