Great activity for small kids, especially if you have some big cardboard at hand (such as our empty IKEA packaging 🙂
Apart from cardboard, we used also a couple of wooden sticks for legs, acrylic paints and various buttons, which we used to decorate the Christmas tree, and glue.
We waited for colored parts to dry up and started to assemble them.
We added an extra part below to prevent the deer parts to open.
And while we were waiting for the parts to dry up, we made some fancy Christmas trees decorated with buttons. see also:
