Trace each child's shoe onto brown paper and 2 hand outlines on the gray paper. Cut out (little ones may need help with the cutting). Glue hand outlines to the toe of the shoe cutout for antlers. Use black and white paper to cut out and glue on eyes or glue on wiggle eyes. Glue on red pom pom nose and draw on a mouth.

These could be made with fun foam or felt and glued onto a burlap backing to make a nice wallhanging for use as a gift for the parents or grandparents. Fold the top of the burlap over, making a casing, and glue. Add a dowel and a hanging cord. Be sure to write on the date somewhere! Or, how about using fabric paints and making a holiday apron for the leaders, using the girls hand and foot prints? Use fingerprints for the nose and eyes, red paint for the nose and black for the eyes. Use a fabric marker to draw on the mouth.
