Make some reindeer party food

Once all party essentials are covered, it’s time to start on the food! Here are a couple of suggestions for easy reindeer party food.

Gingerbread reindeer

Let’s start with the easiest reindeer party food idea of all – gingerbread reindeer!

Simply turn an ordinary gingerbread man upside down, ice on some eyes, eyes, antlers and a mouth, then pop on a glacier cherry for Rudolph’s bright red nose!

Organise your own reindeer games!

What would a reindeer-themed Christmas party be without your very own reindeer games? Perfect for keeping children entertained, here are a couple of our favourite reindeer party games.

Pin the nose on the reindeer

This game is a fabulously festive twist on pin the tail on the donkey. All you need is a picture of a reindeer (if you don’t have a printer you could draw one on an old cardboard box) and some red noses (we’d recommend using red paper with some blue tac on the back.

Each child takes it in turns to stick the nose in the right place and whoever’s closest wins a prize!

Reindeer relay race

If you’ve got plenty of space at your party venue (or the weather’s mild enough to venture outdoors), why not organise some reindeer relay races?

Divide your guests into teams of 2-4 and give each team a pair of antlers. One by one, each member of the team must run to the end and back, passing the antlers to the next member of the team when they get back. The first team to finish wins!

Pass the antlers

This game is pass the parcel with a twist – instead of passing a parcel, everyone sits in a circle and passes a pair of antlers. Whoever’s wearing the antlers when the music stops is out!

Give out reindeer-themed party favours

Finally, make sure you’ve got some cute party favours for your guests to take home as a souvenir of your rocking reindeer party! Here are a couple of suggestions.

Reindeer party bags

Aren’t these cute? And they’re so easy to make! All you need is some brown or gold paper bags and our free reindeer printables. Read our step-by-step tutorial to find out what to do!

Reindeer candy canes

Making these reindeer candy canes couldn’t be easier, and they’re a wonderful treat for your guests to take home and hang on their Christmas tree.

Simply wrap a brown pipe cleaner around two candy canes to hold them together and decorate with googly eyes and a bright red nose. (Take a look at our round-up of easy candy cane crafts for even more clever candy cane ideas).
