Door 15 - Rudolf the reindeer

You need:

your red OHK net
your green OHKnete
your black OHK net
your white OHK net
some yellow OH nets
a cutting tool

That's how it's done:

First we need to remix our play dough. Since we've been paying close attention in art, we know that the colors red and green together make the color brown. So we don't need any extra brown dough, we just mix it up. We also added a tiny bit of yellow play dough, so we just liked the color better.

Now roll the brown dough into an egg. Leave a small amount for the antlers so you don't have to mix them up again afterwards. To make the shape of the head cuter, press the dough in halfway up the egg and down to create the eyes, mouth and nose. In the narrower upper part you can now use your little finger to press in two indentations for the eyes, but only very slightly.

For the eyes, grab your white play dough and form two balls of the same size. You flatten them a little. Form two much smaller balls out of your black play dough and press them into the white play dough, this is how the pupils appear and Rudolf doesn't look so crazy. You now place the finished eyes in the hollows that you previously prepared with your little finger. That already looks pretty good.  

Now to the antlers: for this you take the brown play dough and add some more yellow play dough, this changes the brown tone and you can tell Rudolf's antlers better from the head. Roll two "sausages" of roughly the same size out of the dough and cut both twice, preferably on top and on the side. Shape the antlers to your liking and place them on Rudolf's head. It is best to press in two small indentations here as well so that it holds better. 

Now the most important thing! The nose. To do this, take a small amount of red dough and roll it into a ball. Put them in the middle of your eyes. And done.
