When I say reindeer, what is the first thing that comes to mind? You probably said Rudolph. The most famous reindeer of all has been graced with his own song, TV special and toys. So it’s no surprise that Rudolph crafts are popular as well. To save you time, I have done the research and assembled the Best Rudolph Crafts for Kids this holiday season. These are great to do with kids as they prepare for the excitement of Christmas. For more fun Christmas crafts, check out this Cardboard Tube Christmas Tree.

Looking for more fun activities to do with your kids? I highly recommend KiwiCo, which you can enjoy no matter the weather. As a former teacher, I was really impressed with the quality of materials found in KiwiCo.
Some moms have told me that they want to do activities like I do on Mess For Less with their kids, but they just don’t have to the time to go buy all the supplies and prepare them for the activity. KiwiCo is the perfect solution. Every month your KiwiCo will focus on a particular theme like Colors, Dinosaurs or Gardening. KiwiCo offer a variety of projects ranging from crafts, imaginative play, science experiments and more.
