Christmas Party Favors

My daughter’s preschool class is having a Christmas party, and everyone is supposed to bring a treat to share. We decided to make these cute little personalized Reindeer Treat Bags! This post contains affiliate links.

Aren’t they fun?

It’s a really easy project that kids just love. Plus you can use any kind of treat in a snack sized zip-top bag. I love crafts that involve items I most likely already have in my house!

These Christmas party favors are also perfect for work or even a festive way to send a treat in your child’s lunch box.

Christmas treat bags are also fantastic stocking stuffers that don’t cost a lot, because who doesn’t love a chocolatey treat on Christmas?

Directions To Make Reindeer Clothespin Christmas Treat Bags

Step 1

Once you’ve gathered your craft supplies, start by painting the clothespins brown. 

Step 2

Squirt some glue on the front of the clothespin. If I were making these alone, I would just whip out my hot glue gun, because well, hot glue guns make most Christmas crafts easier.

But to avoid the whines from my 3 year old as I tried to put the hot glue on “her” reindeer, I did let her goop some school glue on the clothespin herself.

Step 3

Then she stuck the pom pom nose on the tip. The pom poms can be tricky to work with when using craft glue because the glue sort of absorbs into the pom pom.

But if you are patient and can hold it in place for a while it will eventually stick on.

Or if you are sneaky like me, just put a drop of hot glue on it when the little one isn’t looking to be sure that it stays on.

Step 4

Add the two googly eyes behind the pom pom nose. These will stick great with craft glue.

Step 5

Clip the pipe cleaner  in the clothespin. Pull the ends of the pipe cleaners up and twist. Then do some curly bends on the ends to make them look like antlers.

Step 6

Use the paint pen to add a child’s name to the clothespin. Then clip the reindeer to the treat bag.

Instructions

  1. Start by painting the clothespins brown. This is easy and neatness isn’t too critical which makes it a great project for even young children to do.
  2. Squirt some glue on the front of the clothespin. If I were making these alone, I would just whip out my hot glue gun because I think everything sticks better with hot glue and it certainly dries quickly. But to avoid the whines from my 3 year old as I tried to put the hot glue on “her” reindeer, I did let her goop some school glue on the clothespin herself.
  3. Then she stuck the pom pom nose on the tip. The pom poms can be tricky to work with when using craft glue because the glue sort of absorbs into the pom pom. But if you are patient and can hold it in place for a while it will eventually stick on….or if you are sneaky like me, just put a drop of hot glue on it when the little one isn’t looking to be sure that it stays on.
  4. Add the two googly eyes behind the pom pom nose. These will stick great with craft glue.
  5. Clip the pipe cleaner in the clothespin. Pull the ends of the pipe cleaners up and twist. Then do some curly bends on the ends to make them look like antlers.
  6. Use the paint pen to add a child’s name to the clothespin and clip the reindeer to the treat bag.
