5 Amazing Facts About Reindeer

Here are 5 Reindeer Facts you probably didn’t know!

  1. They might be survivors from the last Ice Age, but modern climate change could wipe them out.
  2. Did you know they have incredible shrinking hooves?
  3. Reindeers are masters of migration.
  4. They are good swimmers.
  5. The entire body of a reindeer was found inside a Greenland shark.

There are so many things to learn about reindeer. If you are familiar with the basic facts such as how old can they get, where they live, what they eat, etc., then our 5 fun reindeer facts might still surprise you. Let’s check them out:

Reindeer were but on the IUCN red list for threatened species. Research suggests that climate change can trouble the species. Certain reindeer subspecies could lose up to 90% of their habitat in the next 60 years.

The hooves of reindeer adapt to the seasons. During winter the ground is icy and hard. Reindeer footpads shrink and tighten during the cold season for a better grip. In the summer on the other hand their footpads become soft and spongy for extra traction on soft, wet earth.

Reindeers swim like a pro! If they need to cross water, they are more than ready. A grown reindeer can swim from 4mph to 6mph if they hurry.

This is true: A entire reindeer body was found inside a shark. Sharks are attracted to the smell of rotting meat floating in the water. The reindeer was in this case most likely a scavenger on the shark’s part.

2. Reindeer Stencils

Using our reindeer printouts as stencils is also an easy way to make an adorable reindeer winter craft. I recommend using the smaller or medium-sized reindeer outlines to repurpose them into reindeer stencils.

Our most loved painting technique for stencils is using an old toothbrush. With the help of watercolors, you can create beautiful reindeer artwork.

4. Reindeer Storytime

We love storytime at our house. It does not matter if it is at the local library or at home. So why chose a book about reindeer and use it for your next winter storytime.

How about a book where your children, visitors, or students can learn the names of Santa Claus’s reindeer (Rudolph, Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, and Blitzen)? Prior to your storytime make sure to cut out nine of our medium-sized reindeer templates to show and don’t forget to give Rudolph a red nose.

5. Learn about Reindeer

If your children study reindeer you can also use our templates. Why not approach this subject a little differently and let your child create a presentation for your class or just your family?

They could use our reindeer outline templates as title pictures for their presentation. What do you think?

6. Letter ‘R’ Activity

‘R’ is for reindeer.
Engaging your children in related activities to the letter will help them learn faster. Make sure to study each letter at a time and match it with an exciting activity. This will help your students to create memories for each letter.

So why not use our templates of reindeer and at them to your letter R studies. Let your kids color the large reindeer printable and add some letter R worksheets to them.

7. Reindeer Silhouette

I love decorating our windows for each season. During winter I love adding winter silhouettes with other crafts my children do.
To create your own reindeer silhouettes you need to print and cut them on white paper and then transfer them onto black paper. After cutting the reindeer out, you can attach them with transparent tape to your windows.

Let me know how they turned out!
