Flying Reindeer STEM Challenge for Kids
We just finished watching from our book collection and you can find two little girls at my house who LOVE reindeers.
So I decided to challenge them to use recycled items and craft items we had around the house to create their own reindeer. However I had to add an extra element to the challenge… Can you make your reindeer fly?
Materials for Reindeer
Directions to Make Reindeer
1. Encourage your child to gather up recycled materials around the house to make their reindeer. We used a cardboard tube and cereal box to form the body of the reindeer. My oldest decided to cut a slit in the tube to make a place for the head to attach. Attach with on the head and then insert the black pipe cleaner. Once halfway through begin to bend pipe cleaner to form the antlers. The sillier the better.

Confession time… Admit it we all have had those Christmas morning, or late Christmas Eves when we can’t figure out how to put together a toy for our child. Here’s a great way to get your kids on the track to understanding direction. Have them create their own. Better yet feel free to email it to us or post in our facebook page.
