Reindeer food

This is such an easy and wonderful craft to do with children.  Teachers, day care instructors, babysitters, grandparents or mom and dad can turn this fun idea into a yearly tradition.  I happen to think it would also make cute gifts for their young neighborhood pals or even to give as party favors at the end of a pre-holiday get together.  Many thanks to my precious granddaughter's mother, Rebecca Jane Stuart, for providing today's inspiration for a blog post.  She and my granddaughter, Fiona, made this cute parcel at their baby group today. 


1/4 C Oatmeal
1/4 C Sugar
Red OR Green sugar crystals OR Glitter

Mix all ingredients.
Here's the poem that goes with this special food:

‎"Be sure to take this magic food and sprinkle it on the lawn, On Christmas Eve, Santa's reindeer travel miles before the dawn. The smell of oats and shining path will guide them on their way, And you'll wake up to Santa's gifts next morn on Christmas Day!"


  1. Thanks for stopping by, Kimberly...I can't take credit for this one, it goes to Rebecca. I sure wish I could have seen my granddaughter making this, though. I bet she had fun!
