Use a small paintbrush to add a thin layer of paint to their hand. Make sure you have the wipes handy!!

Cover their hands with paint and place one hand pointing up using the fingers as the antlers. The other hand should be placed facing downwards to use as the reindeer legs.

Press down all along their hand to make sure the handprint transfers fully.
