Directions

Gather all your supplies. Pour out the brown, black, white and red paint on to four separate plastic plates.

I used my paint pallet for the white paint.

The spatula will go into the brown paint, the knife into the black, the spoon into the red paint and the q-tip will go into the white paint.

I wanted a slightly lighted brown than what I had so I mixed in a little white paint.

Dip your spatula into the brown paint. Make sure that there is lots of paint on it covering the entire surface. This will make the face of Rudolph.

Then stamp the spatula into the center of the brown construction paper (as shown below).

You may have to hold on to the piece of construction paper so that it stays down as you lift the spatula up.

Next, add the googly eyes. Stick them on while the paint is still wet so that you will not need glue.

Next comes Rudolph’s red nose. Dip the back of your spoon into the red paint and then stamp it at the bottom of Rudolph’s face (see picture below for reference).

Next, Rudolph’s antlers. Dip the plastic knife into the black paint and create two lines straight out of Rudolph’s head.

Dip plastic knife into the paint.

Stamp two starting antlers.

Then make two shorter lines coming out of each antler (see picture below for reference).

My 3 year old didn’t want to add any more to her antlers. She wanted to make a baby Rudolph!

Next, Rudolph’s ears. Wipe of your plastic knife with a wet wipe or use clean plastic knife. Dip it into the brown paint.

Dip clean knife into the brown paint.

Then make two small ears on either side of the antlers.

Let it Snow

Finally comes the snowy background. Dip the q-tip into the white paint and then stamp it all around Rudolph to create the snowy background.
