Reindeer Food

on December 22, 2012

If you’ve never made reindeer food, you need to!  Such a simple activity that takes no time and limited ingredients, but will bring such a big smile to your kid’s face!  Here’s what you need:

Rolled oats

Green and Red Sugar

Ziplock Bag

Spoons

Super simple, no measuring needed and the kids can create their own mixture.  I give each child a ziplock bag and set the oats and colored sugars in front of them.  Each child uses the spoons to scoop into their bag some oats and some of the sugars.  Seal the bags and shake them up, tah dah you’re ready to feed the reindeer on Christmas Eve!  I usually attach this poem as well and read it to them before we sprinkle it outside on the lawn.

Sprinkle this out on the lawn

And Santa’s reindeer will arrive before dawn

The oats and sugar will guide them on their way

And you’ll wake up to gifts on Christmas day!

Such a fun tradition to add to your Christmas!
