Root Beer Reindeer!


When I saw these on Fingerprints on the Fridge, I knew I had to make them. I have been trying to come up with something clever to give to Cooper's preschool teachers, and since there is a staff of nine who all work with each class, I knew it had to be something cute and on the cheap!

Total cost for this project:
$3.60 per six pack (on sale at Ralphs)
Packs of pipe cleaner, google eyes, and pom-poms (about 100 each): $10
Total cost was a little $40 for nine six-packs, or about $4.70 per six pack. 


Less than $5  per person and I have a super adorable treat for each of the wonderful teachers to show them our appreciation. It would be a great activity for the kids too!

Linking up to some of these great parties.

Thanks for sharing this idea. Just made them with my son for his Kindergarten teachers. He was able to do most of the work himself and they turned out really cute.
