Make it Mondays: Paper Plate Reindeer

The North Liberty Recreation Department’s Make It Monday craft for the week of Dec. 13, 2021, is paper plate reindeer. Included in this week’s kit are all the materials you need to make the craft (you should provide glue, scissors and markers), coloring sheets and activity ideas.

Each week, Make It Monday offers a free to-go activity for kids. To participate in the program, simply stop by the North Liberty Community Center, 520 W. Cherry Street, and pick up an activity kit while supplies last. Kits are free.

How to Make It


  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Pompom
  • Paper plate
  • Googly Eyes
  • Brown construction paper


  1. After gathering supplies, trace your child’s hand on the lighter shade of brown construction paper. As they are cutting out their handprint, draw the shape of ears onto the darker shade of construction paper. Invite your child to cut the ears out as well.
  2. Use a glue stick to secure the ears, antlers, wiggly eyes, and pom pom nose to the brown paper plate.
  3. Tape a loop of string or pipe cleaner to the back of the paper plate so that children can hang their reindeer on the Christmas tree!
