  3. Glue the hand antlers onto the face as shown with fabric/tacky glue.
  4. Using your child's fingers, create the whites of Rudolph's eyes by painting and printing her thumb and printing it onto the face. Dip your child's index finger into the black paint and create pupils. The red nose is made by printing your child's index finger with red paint.
