okay, i lied. this guy’s nose isn’t red at all, it’s actually purple. oh well… he still is dang cute! and i definitely can’t take credit for this little guy at all. i actually stole him from a friend, who got him as a gift. but i couldn’t resist. it was such a great idea… perfect for the kiddos to make. our little reindeer friend consists of a chocolate bar, wrapped in kraft paper (or you could recycle those paper grocery bags), a few pipe cleaner antlers, a pom pom nose & a little ribbon. (although i might add a pair of wiggly eyes – i’ve always loved them. especially as a kid, when i would stick them up my nose, or was it my ears? i forget the story.) anyways, you get it all packaged up & ta da! you got yourself a reindeer or two. perfect for gifting to friends, family, neighbors… basically, just about anyone. & i can guarantee the little ones will get a kick out of making them.

Although my daughter is 30, I made one of the reindeer candy bars from her cat (Oscar). We did a lot of crafts when she was young--it brought back wonderful memories.
