Christmas Reindeer Cookies for Kids

Happy FUN Day Friday! Is everyone having fun with all the Christmas and holiday festivities? Need a fun idea of something to do with your kids this weekend?

My boys LOVED making these Christmas reindeer cookies for kids with me:

Kids Reindeer Christmas Cookies

These cookies are perfect for kids because they are really easy. My 4 year old could even do it. I think they would be great for a little Christmas party if you are hosting one or to take to your kid’s class (if you are allowed to bring homemade baked goods-I’m not), or just for fun with your little ones.

Christmas Reindeer Cookies for Kids Recipe:

(Just a note-this is a peanut butter cookie recipe but if you have peanut allergies you can also do this with a thick sugar cookie dough.)

Christmas Reindeer Cookies
  • 1 C margarine
  • 1 C peanut butter
  • 1 C sugar
  • 1 C brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2½ C flour
  • To Decorate:
  • Pretzels
  • Chocolate Chips
  • M&M's
  1. Mix the cookie dough just like any other dough. You are going to want it to be thick enough to do a little sculpting with, so add a little more flour if needed.
  2. Grab a blob of dough and shape it like a reindeer head.
  3. Press 2 pretzels into the top to form the antlers.
  4. Press 2 upside down chocolate chips in for the eyes.
  5. Press a red M&M in for the nose.
  6. Bake at 375 degrees for about 8 minutes.


My boys got a little crazy and started making alien reindeer, baby reindeer, 3 eyed reindeer and many other crazy creations. But that’s the fun of it!
