Rudolf the rednosed reindeer had a very shiny nose - Holiday art project using finger paints!!

Have you felt the lightness of the moment when everything is organized in life? I am a person with a long checklist of things to do and ongoing quest to clear my list. However, most of the time there are number of unchecked items as new items get added at the same pace as old ones closing. But then comes a moment, short lived yet blissful when all the things, spaces and relations in our lives are well organized. My favorite thing to do to enjoy the bliss of that short moment is have a cup of chai, listen to music, have a cookie and read a book till something else pops up.

It is so important to slow down every once a while and unclutter life. It is amazing how light it feels when we do not have any backlog in mind! With New Year approaching in less than a month now, try getting your checklist done. Organize your thoughts, spaces, life and make room for the change you want to see in yourself for the coming year.

Here is a simple and creative idea to spend quality time with the family and check that box in to do list!

For this month’s project I have Rudolph the red nose reindeer. You can make greetings, bookmarks, gift tags, gift bags and decorate a coffee cup sleeve using this idea.

What you will need

• Finger paints
• Wiggly eyes
• Marker
• Small pom poms
• Glue

Dip your thumb in the paint and make an impression on the paper for reindeers face. Let dry. Stick wiggly eyes . Stick pom poms for nose using glue. Use red pom pom for Rudolph. Draw antlers using markers

Wish you all a very joyful and colorful Christmas and a very Happy New Year!
