Reindeer Food

Here is what Mason and I will be doing this afternoon!  This is a fun way to get the kids involved in preparation for Santa's big arrival.  Everyone remembers to put cookies and milk out for Santa each year, but what about the hard-working team of reindeer?  Before your cherubs go to sleep on Christmas Eve, have them sprinkle some magic reindeer food on the front lawn or by the front door so the team can keep its energy up to make it to all the boys and girls homes before morning.

Here is what you need:
  • Oatmeal
  • Magic reindeer dust (gold or brightly colored glitter or bakery sprinkles)
Put the ingredients on a snack-sized bag, shake it up, and it's ready to give to your child to put out before going to bed.  The magic dust will glisten in the snow or grass, making it easy for the reindeer to spot. 

If you live in an area where you are concerned about wildlife eating the glitter, substitute bakery sprinkles or even sugar (colored with food coloring, if desired).

Use these two links below from in you want a cute reindeer poem to put on your bag of food.

On Christmas Eve, sprinkle this wonderful Reindeer Food on your lawn. The shiny glitter or sprinkles will sparkle in the moonlight and the smell of oats will guide Rudolph to your home.
