Learning guide

Small children will enjoy the repetitive nature of this activity, and older kids can have a go at giving each reindeer a different feature, like funny eyebrows or a little hat. Your child will also need to keep track of how many flags they've created, and the reindeer's features (two eyes, one nose), which will help them with their maths skills too.
