Need a Last Minute Gift Idea for Your Kiddo’s Class? Make Mini Reindeer!

Santa’s favorite furry helpers make great gifts. 🦌
It’s no secret kids love special surprises around the holidays. Whether you need classroom gifts or a sweet little treat for the kid’s table at Christmas dinner, check out Hip2Save reader Ashley’s adorable mini reindeer.

I love to do gifts for my son’s daycare classmates for different holidays. But, let’s be honest, daycare is expensive! So I like to keep them on the frugal side.

As class gifts this year I made Rudolph playdoh. I wrapped 2 oz. containers of Playdough in a brown napkin. The antlers are cut from card stock (or you could use pipe cleaners), the nose is a pompom, and the eyes were made with my Silhouette Cameo—but googly eyes would be easy, too! It worked out to around 50¢ per kid and looks special and fun!

Hip Tip: Try making Lina’s homemade gingerbread playdough for this idea!

Simple and sweet!
