MAGIC Reindeer Food – Feed the Reindeer!

We MUST feed the reindeer! Feeding the reindeer was something my son looked forward to every Christmas Eve.  As soon as we would get home from Christmas Eve dinner, he would set out Santa’s treat and then head out to the yard and sprinkle the reindeer food that came with his Santa Letter.

We would also make up some extra reindeer food just in case they were really really hungry.  Sadly, my son is now 12 and no longer thinks about the poor little reindeer.  But I still like to make it and place in a jar for decoration or for younger children to see.  I may attach the cute poem below and give some to my neighbors with little ones.  It’s so easy to make!magic reindeer food

Sprinkle this reindeer food outside tonight,

The moonlight will make it sparkle bright,

As the reindeer fly and roam,

This will guide them to your home.

Sprinkle on the grass at night before bed.  The reindeer love the Oats and the glitter gets their attention and gives them their magic!
