Paper Plate Rudolph Card Holder

This cute little craft is very easy to do and makes a fun little pocket card keeper. To make it, paint two paper plates brown. One plate on the front and the other on the back. Let dry and cut the one you painted on the backside in half, as shown below. Trace both hands on cream colored paper and cut out. Glue behind the top of whole plate.
Staple the half plate to the whole plate as shown in top picture. This will create the pocket. Make eyes out of two sizes of circle and glue a big red pom pom on for the nose. Reindeer headband optional.

These are perfect for stashing little cards or notes. If in the classroom, students can practice writing little notes to one another. Kindergarten students love copying a message at the writing station, they won't even realize they are practicing handwriting☺ and then delivering it. At home, it would be fun to find in the morning, a note from one of Santa's elfs inside telling your child what they've been doing to stay on the "nice" list.

Very cute! My son loves all things Rudolph... maybe we'll do this this afternoon. Maybe if I make an oversized version, we can use it as a Christmas card holder.
