Christmas Gift -Reindeer nose lollipops

We are about to finish the school year in Sydney . Summer long holidays are coming and also Christmas.
Every year ,my kids and I love to make little presents for their classmates. This year we are making “Reindeer lollipop cards”.

Thinking of quick and easy ideas for the kids to help in the making, I remember this idea I saw a while ago in the Brisbane kids website.
They didn’t offer a template to print at that time, but luckily somebody was recommending this image in the comments and I have
used it to make a template in Photoshop for us to print and make our reindeer cards.

I am offering the printable template  here  for free use and download, clarifying that the original drawing is not mine,
only the template I’ve put together and  I am sharing it,  as it was shared with me.

METHOD 2: Outlining the template

  • Download the single reindeer image  HERE .
  • Print it in cardboard and cut inside the outlines to use as a template.
  • Fold a piece of cardboard in half.
  • Trace figures with the template using a thick black marker.
    Make sure the insertion for the lollipop sits right in the folded edge.
  • Cut outside the black outlines and follow instructions above to glue the card together.

I used green cardboard for the outlined templates. Although they look awesome it was a bit hard to cut and glue together.
I will recommend using coloured paper if you can . It will make it easier especially if the kids are helping with it.

    This is brilliant, thanks SO much! Was looking for something to give my Foudation/Gr1 kids that wasn’t going to take all my ‘free’ time…
    Have a happy Christmas!
