Recycled Rudolph

When I saw this project in 
Good Housekeeping Magazine

I knew I'd have to give it a try in my classroom.

It's a great decoration made from 
upcycled materials.

I started with a mailing box from the post office

I drew a reindeer shape onto the box and cut it out double with the nose on the fold so it would stay together.

I had the children in my Pre-Kindergarten class 
paint it brown.

I also cut out cardboard antlers and had the children paint them brown as well.

The finished product was a surprise for the kids 
when I put it together.

The antlers were a bit of a challenge to get 
them to stay up but a few skewers fixed the problem.

Not a bad likeness of Rudolph watching from 
our classroom easel.

and the children love him!
