This Rudolph Paper Plate Craft for Kids is so festive and fun, you'll want to sing your favorite Christmas Rudolph song.
I love Christmas music and I love that some radio stations play it right after Thanksgiving. Now I understand if you work at a business that plays it all day everyday, you might get sick of it. But I think it's magical.
When I was younger, I used to have the Hanson's Snowed In Christmas CD. I played that baby so much, jamming' out in my room, posters of Zac everywhere. Haha! But now, I'm more of classic Christmas song type of person. I like, Deck the Halls, Mary Did You Know, Jingle Bell Rock and of course Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer.
Rudolph is a classic song that my whole family loves to sing along to. I grew up with the sayings after different parts of the song such as "like a light bulb" or "like Pinocchio." My husband and son look at me like I'm crazy and tell me that's not part of the song but it is, and I always thought it was the best part of our Christmas concerts when I was younger.
Since my whole family loves Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, I thought this Rudolph Paper Plate Craft for Kids would be a perfect Christmas craft.
