Making reindeer or doing Christmas Projects with reindeer always brings us a lot of joy and excitement.

Your child can try out their skills and learn how to draw Rudolph independently with our How to Draw a Deer guide. Color the deer’s nose red.

And what makes us even more excited is that today we came up with a way to hide our reindeer in a Christmas box and let it come out when we want.

You can use this small box as an ornament for your Christmas tree, or you can write a Christmas message on the back and give it to anyone you want.

So guys, if you’re planning to make a Christmas box with reindeer inside, let’s get started!
