Give each child a piece of whole wheat bread (triangle shape) and let him or her spread it with peanut butter. Place bread on a paper plate and let children use pretzel sticks to create antlers and legs. Children can then use raisins to create eyes, a cherry for a nose, and a piece of licorice string for a mouth and tail.
