Each reindeer puppet has adorably cute wibbly wobbly legs, a bright red Rudolf nose and a simple craft stick handle at the back which you hold to make them move.
The reindeer puppet template comes in both full colour and black and white which children can decorate themselves.
Each reindeer template has both a ready made head and a design your own head. The design your own head comes with cut and paste features or you can draw your own or glue on things like wiggle eyes, a pom pom nose and jingle bells.
