REINDEER FOOD final

We love to sprinkle Reindeer Food on our front lawn each year on Christmas Eve.  It is one of our favorite Christmas Eve traditions.  It is simple to make and this is cute poem that I like to read while my son sprinkles it.

Reindeer Food

The Poem Reads:

“Sprinkle this in your yard on Christmas Eve night.  The light of the moon will make it sparkle bright.  As Santa’s reindeer fly and roam, this will guide them to your home!”

To make your reindeer food take 2 TBSP of rolled quick oats and mix with 1 tsp of glitter.  You can also add cheerios to the mix if you like!

  1. We burn cookies for the reindeer. :D About 8 years ago was the first time I’d baked cookies for Santa, My daughter was 2 1/2 and we were having so much fun. Well mommy goofed and burnt the first batch, my dd was so upset. I thought quickly and told her about how much Rudolph and his friends LOVE burnt cookies. Mrs Claus even has to make them batches every year. I assured her that it would be a special treat because Mrs. Claus doesn’t like to burn the cookies and stink up the kitchen so she doesn’t do it often. We took all the burnt cookies outside and walked around dropping them. Later that night I went out and scrunched them all up and the next morning she was thrilled to see that reindeer had enjoyed our cookies.
    We’ve done this every year since. Last year she quit believing and demanded to be let in the loop and she was NOT just a dumb kid anymore :( This year I’m going to take her out with me to scrunch up the cookies for her lil brother’s enjoyment and show her how much it means to have that kind of wonder when you are small and how rewarding it is to secretly play the big guy among the other helpful fairies and bunnies.
