Santa would certainly approve of this six-pack! With their red noses shining bright, this group of rootdeer makes everyone smile with delight. Creative and consumable gifts are the best choice for teachers, so this year I decided to have my daughter help me make a set of rootdeer for her teacher for Christmas. We added ribbon collars with bells so that the rootdeer jingle. Each set of antlers is made from one brown pipe cleaner. I first saw the idea for this Root Deer craft on naptime crafters.
My daughter wanted to put bows on the top of the bottles to make a few girls but I didn't think that girl reindeer had antlers. We found out otherwise after searching online. Both male and female reindeer grow antlers! Did you know that? Another interesting fact we learned is that male reindeer typically lose their antlers during winter but the females don't lose theirs until spring! So are Santa's reindeer female or male? Snopes.com has a good answer: Reindeer Games
