About the Reindeer:
This years Reindeer are based on nature, taking inspiration from adult coloring-in books. As you discover each reindeer you will find different animals and habitats being featured.
In a world that is ever changing, it is more important than ever to be aware of our environmental impact on this planet. Whenever we enjoy the outdoors we must always be aware of our footprint and remember that we share this planet with some amazing animals! Always remember to respect nature and do your bit to leave no trace on this beautiful planet we call home! These reindeer pay tribute and celebrate all animals around the world in their natural habitat.
How where they made:
The reindeer are made out of wood. First we found a stencil of a reindeer and traced it our onto some plywood. Once the stencil was made we used a jigsaw to cut out the shape of the reindeer. We then mounted them onto 2x4 wood stakes which allow us to display them around the mountain. Once we had constructed the reindeer we could start painting. This was the fun part! All the reindeer received a white base coat prior to painting, this protects the wood from the elements and makes sure our precious reindeer survive our harsh winter conditions here at Big White. We then started researching adult colouring in books and drew inspiration for our drawings from images found. Choosing multiple animals that share a habitat to combine together. Once the animals where drawn and painted we then got to choose the appropriate background to make our animals as at home as possible on their reindeer. We used water base indoor house paint for all of our paintings and to finish them off we used a sealant spray. This protects the paint against the elements.
