Christmas Craft for Kids: Reindeer Food Recipe and Printable Tag

Free Reindeer Food Printable: Right-Click and Save Image Above to Print and Attach to Your Bag of Reindeer Food

I want the magic of Christmas, and the pure joy and wonder it evokes in my children, to last FOREVER! Of course that can't happen, but until the mystique of Christmas, Santa and his Flying Reindeer wears off, I'm going to make every moment as special as I can.

Here is a fun - and simple! - craft to do with your kids in the days leading up to Christmas: Reindeer Food! I'm actually doing this at my daughter's class Christmas party - it's fun and not messy : )

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!

Here's the recipe:
  • One scoop of Reindeer Seeds (aka bird seed)
  • One scoop of Reindeer Oats (aka uncooked oatmeal)
  • A sprinkle of Magic Christmas Dust (aka glitter)

Have your kids combine everything into a clear bag - either cellophane or even a sandwich bag! - and shake, shake, shake (to activate the magic dust, of course!) Attach a card with ribbon, and VOILA! - Reindeer Food. Kids can sprinkle it out on the front lawn Christmas Eve right before bed.

I've included a free printable you can save and print to attach to your "Reindeer Food" bags.
