Reindeer dimensions, snowman directions, and a TPT SALE!

Hiya Peeps! Kerri here...
I have three words for you...RAINY DAY SCHEDULE. ALL. DAY.  Catch my drift??? Sigh... But guess what my hubs brought home from his Secret Santa today??

HOLY REESES HUGENESS! Have you ever seen such a glorious sight in all your life?? It is hard to tell from the picture, but those suckers are at least 4 inches in diameter!! and 2 inches deep!!

We just HAD to compare and contrast...hee hee!

Here is a close-up of Mr. Reindeer...

Is it just me, or does this guy have "crazy eyes"?? Maybe it's the rainy day schedule talking! The following dimensions are all in inches:

Body = 6 by 9 dark brown (magic Oval)

Head = 4.5 by 6 dark brown (magic oval)

Handprint antlers = 6 by 9 light brown folded in half and the kids hand traced onto the folded paper. Then they only have to cut once!

4 Feet = 6 by 1 dark brown (no cutting necessary by the kids. They love this step!)

4 hooves = 4 by 1 black folded twice. Unfold and cut on the lines to make 4 perfect hooves!

Tail = dark brown triangle saved from when you cut the body

Eyes = 1.5 by 3 white folded in half and 1 by 2 black folded in half (magic circle cuts)

Straps = 1 by 6 red (no cutting necessary by kids)

4 Bells =  you will need (2) 1 by 2 yellow folded in half, magic circle cuts

Some of my kids were insistent upon adding ears, which I made optional, because they were VERY insistent! :)

Sharpie for detail!! And, I told them "NO SNAGGLY TEETH, NO CRAZY MOUTHS, NO OPEN MOUTHS" but some of them did it anyway. DANGIT!! Those little rogue artists of mine! :)

Some of you requested the snowman plaque directions so here they are:

Step 1: Paint white with acrylic paint. Let dry.

Step 2: Add the dot pattern around the edge with acrylic paint and the top of a pencil eraser. I did mine in small groups and they all finished in 15 minutes. Let dry.

Step 3: Step draw the snowman in sharpie and add color with crayon. Tell them to color DARK so it is bright and beautiful. Bubble cut around the edge (meaning leave a border).

Step 4: Using a SHARPIE paint marker in blue, add snowflakes around the edge. I had my kids place their snowman in the middle so they would know where to put the snowflakes and I also had my student teacher (me loves her!!) pull them back one at a time to do this step.

Step 5: Using mod podge and a foam brush, glue down your snowman and then cover the whole top and sides with the mod podge as well. My student teacher and I did this in about 20 minutes. Let dry and you are GOLDEN!!

Hope these directions are of use to you!! In honor of having only 4 days left, I am throwing a little S.A.L.E. on TPT!! Everything is 20% off until Friday. Go get your Winter Words, ladies (any gents out there??) Click on the pic to go to my TPT store...

Happy Monday!!

Oh my word! I love the reindeer! We did them today and they are my new favorite project. Without the bloggy world, I would be doing the same crap as before. Oh and magic oval/circle...where have you been all my life? Thanks for sharing your reindeer!
