Craft ideas that bring this Rudolph clipart & coloring pages to life
Crafting can turn a simple coloring session into a memorable learning experience. With Rudolph coloring pages as the starting point, these crafts are sure to bring festive cheer and creativity to your home.
Map Rudolph’s journey: Take the completed Rudolph coloring pages and cut out the reindeer figure. Then, provide a large paper or a printable map for your child to paste Rudolph on.
Help them draw a dashed line from the North Pole to your home location, discussing the different countries and oceans they might fly over. This craft is a fun way to introduce basic geography and foster discussions about different cultures and Christmas traditions around the world.
Make Rudolph’s nose light up: After coloring Rudolph, the fun continues by making his nose glow. Cut out Rudolph from the coloring page and attach it to a piece of construction paper. Then, using a hole punch, make a hole where Rudolph’s nose would be. Place a small LED tea light (like this red one) behind the hole to create the effect of a glowing nose.
Kids can add beads or other decorations in between each Rudolph for extra flair. Hang the garland across a fireplace or in the child’s bedroom to add a personal touch to holiday decorations.
Turn Rudolph into a puppet: After coloring, cut out the Rudolph figure and tape it to a popsicle stick or straw to create a simple puppet. Encourage your child to create their own puppet show by crafting additional characters, like Santa or other reindeer. This activity promotes storytelling and can be a playful way to reenact the classic Rudolph story.
Fashion a Rudolph headband: Once the coloring is complete, cut out Rudolph’s head and attach it to a paper headband using staples or tape. You might add other decorative elements like fake fur or glitter to simulate snow. This craft not only stimulates creativity but also results in a cute accessory for the festive season, perfect for holiday photos or a school Christmas party.
