Magic Reindeer Food Recipe

I mentioned this on my post earlier on Christmas traditions so I thought I would share the recipe with you. This is meant to be spread on your lawn on Christmas Eve for the reindeer to snack on while Santa leaves your presents.

Magic Reindeer Food

1/2 c oats
1/2 c sugar
1/4 c red and/or green sugar crystals (like the ones you sprinkle on cookies or cakes)

It looks really neat if you layer it in a glass jar but its also nice in a ziploc bag.

Here is the poem that goes with it:

Sprinkle on the lawn at night
The moon will make it sparkle bright
As Santa's reindeer fly and roam
This will guide them to your home

Most of the time birds or other animals eat this in the night so that it appears that the reindeer ate it! Which is really magical for children.

Awesome, thanks! I will totally use this. I posted a link for free printable letters to children FROM Santa which is also another cool thing little ones love. Check it out at this link.

I just love seeing what cool things people do around the holidays. Thanks for sharing this :)
