Easy Reindeer Rock Craft

This easy reindeer rock craft is the perfect project for kids this holiday season!  It would make a cute reindeer magnet or ornament.  We’ve also made these mason jar reindeer, wooden reindeer ornaments and this alphabet block reindeer in the past.

First you need to start with some rocks, clearly!  I really like these flat river rocks for painting from Amazon.  It can sometimes be hard to find the perfect flat rock for craft projects and so these rocks make it easy!  But if you want to go out rock hunting just be sure to wash the rocks that you find thoroughly before using them for your project.

Ta-da!!  Your cute rock reindeer is done!  You could glue a strong magnet to the back of this craft making it something that could be attached to the fridge or filing cabinet.

I could totally see this being something that the kids give to grandma or fasten with twine and hang from the Christmas tree.
