10 Craft Ideas To Do With Rudolph Coloring Pages

Here are 10 inexpensive, fun, and creative craft ideas you can do with your completed coloring page!

10. Rudolph Masks

To make Rudolph masks, which is a perfect activity for a kids’ Christmas party, you will need my Simple Rudolph Face Template, scissors, string, ribbon, yarn, or twine.

You’re going to have the kids color in Rudolph’s face and antlers and then cut him out.

Poke holes using a pencil into the eyes and enlarge them with scissors as needed.

Next, you’re going to prick holes into the sides of his face – I’d suggest right where his cheeks start to round out.

Thread string, ribbon, yarn, or twine through the holes and knot, so that it stays firmly in place.

Then leave about eight to 10 inches of string/ribbon/yarn/twine dangling – that’s what you’ll use to get the perfect fit onto the kids’ faces.

9. Puzzles

Turn one of my more ornate Rudolph pictures into a cute puzzle that’s as fun to put together the tenth time as it is the first.

Have your kids color in the illustration top to bottom; then have them take a sharpie and draw puzzle-shaped pieces directly on the picture.

Next, have them cut out along the lines they drew. If you want the pieces to be sturdier, paste cardstock to the back before cutting.

This activity is especially great if you have multiple kids or a classroom of children, as they can switch puzzles.

8. Antlers Headbands

For this craft, you’ll need a Rudolph coloring page that features his antlers prominently; I suggest Cute Cartoon Rudolph With Big Antlers or Simple Rudolph Face Template.

You’re going to cut construction paper into two-inch strips and make loops with them to fit onto your kid’s head. You can use two strips cut down to size if you need to.

Tape the ends together and then tape or glue the antlers to the construction paper loop a few inches apart.

And voila! You have wearable antlers – all you need is a red nose!

7. Table Décor 

Turn my Rudolph pages into adorable table décor with just toilet paper rolls and glue.

You’re going to get your kids to color in just the Rudolph figure on some of the illustrations – I recommend Simple Red-Nosed Rudolph or Adorable Rudolph.

Then they’re going to cut out the figure, trace it onto cardstock, and cut out that outline. Paste the two pieces together.

Next, they’re going to paste a whole or half toilet paper roll to the back so that the figure sits up on its own.

Arrange the figures on your table with artificial snow sheets and a Christmas village.

6. Finger Puppets

You can use Simple Red-Nosed Rudolph and Adorable Rudolph, as well as other coloring pages, to make finger puppets that your kids can use to playact.

Have them color in the figures and cut them out, then trace them on cardstock and cut out that outline, too.

Paste the two pieces together (the cardstock reinforces the flimsier computer paper) and then poke two holes near the bottom of the figures.

Enlarge the holes using scissors so your children’s fingers can fit through.

5. Hand Antlers Rudolph

Print off as many Adorable Rudolph The Reindeer Faces as you will need and have your kids color in the face – but not the antlers or the ears.

Have them cut out just the face, not the antlers or the ears.

Have the kids trace their hands and cut them out using brown construction paper. 

They’re going to place their hands where the antlers would go and paste them on from the back.

4. Greeting Cards

Use my Rudolph coloring pages as cute, homemade greeting cards that are sure to delight anyone this holiday season.

Print them off on the half-page or quarter-page and fold them accordingly, then have your kids color in the illustration.

Be sure to write a message both inside and out!

3. Rudolph 3D Noses

For a simple craft that would suit preschoolers or younger, print off one of my Rudolph pages and have your little one color it in, everything except the nose.

Then, once they’re done coloring, they can glue on a red pom pom for the nose.

2. Sparkly Nose Rudolphs

As an alternate craft for older kids who have a defter touch, you can also have them color in Rudolph and then fill in his nose with glitter glue.


If you don’t have access to glitter glue, you can have them fill in his nose with glue and then apply red glitter.

Wait until it dries completely (it could take up to a few days, depending on how much glue they used), and then blow off the excess glitter.

1. Jingle Bells Rudolphs

For this craft, you’ll need crafting sticks, red or green ribbon (and lots of it), plus mini bells.

To start, you’re going to loop the ribbon through the bells at one-and-a-half-inch intervals, tying it off as you go. Do this until you have five or six bells attached.

Then you’re going to wrap the ribbon around the craft stick, hot gluing it down at the bottom and tying it off at the top, complete with a bow.

Next, your kids are going to color in Rudolph’s face and antlers and cut them out.

They’re going to glue about an inch to an inch-and-a-half of the stick to the back of Rudolph’s face.

Then they can shake and jingle to their heart’s content!
