When you think of Christmas what do you imagine?  Maybe candy canes, Christmas trees, snowman, gingerbread men and of course, Santa Clause.  And you probably know the names or at least some of the names of Santa’s reindeer from the 1949 hit ‘Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer’.  Santa originally had 8 reindeer and it wasn’t until 1939 that Rudolph came into the scene to make 9.

A great way to share the story of Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer is to read a book and make one these 20 Reindeer Crafts For Preschoolers and Toddlers. From a printable reindeer hat to a cute candy cane craft to a homemade reindeer ornament, there's something for everyone on your list!

Santa’s favorite, Rudolph joined after the original 8 reindeers.  He is known to be a shy reindeer and at first was very self-conscious about himself and his red nose which many used to tease him about.

It wasn’t until Santa recognized his shiny bulb of a nose as a gift in order to light the way on Christmas Eve, that he was then elevated to the status of Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer.
