Step 2: Draw on the reindeer faces

Once the paint is completely dry then draw on little antlers, eyes and a red nose with permanent markers.

If you prefer to paint on the features you can do that instead.

Step 3: Try making different designs from your thumbprints

Try making different Christmas designs using thumbprints.

We made this cute snowman.

You could try making a robin, penguin or an angel.

We recommend giving new designs a go on paper first before you add them to your baubles.

 

These thumbprint baubles make beautiful gifts for Christmas for your child to give out, to family, friends or their teacher
