Reindeer Food

My kids used to LOVE to make this.
Ripstick boy has outgrown it but Curly Girl is still really into it.

So here are the ingredients to help your own little elf make Reindeer food for Santa's Reindeer:

1 cup oatmeal
1 smallish palmful of glitter...this is what makes them fly
Some red or green sprinkles.

Mix all together and sprinkle it on the lawn. (we used to HAVE to put it in bowls....)
The reindeer get thirsty flying around all night so Curly Girl likes to put out a large bowl of water too.

We put this out right before the kids go to bed, about the same time we put out Santa's cookies and milk.

Curly girl always checks to see how much was eaten and if any water is left.....

Oh, that's such a cute idea! And it would look lovely on our 18 inches of snow (that we are getting a bit tired of....). Have a wonderful Christmas, Val :-)

Ah, the magic of Christmas! It is so lovely to hear that you still believe, as we all do at our house, Val.:) Your note made me smile!
WE'll have to make some reindeer food this year, too! Lori
