As you may have noticed, we are busy getting ready for the holidays and cannot wait for Christmas to arrive. My kids are so excited about Christmas this year that we are going all out. The tree is up, the lights are on the house , the stockings are hung….now we wait.
Since we have 23 days to wait until Santa and his reindeer arrive, we thought we would start preparing for their arrival as well. To help them find our house on Christmas Eve we made batch of reindeer food to sprinkle in the snow around our house. Since we live in Wisconsin, we thought now was a good time to get started because all the snow we keep getting could make it hard for them to find us.
Making reindeer food is really easy and only requires a few ingredients and supplies. To get started you will need the items pictured below.
You will need holiday treat bags, a canister of oats, sugar and sprinkles. Now for sprinkles, you can use any kind you want. We went with the rainbow because all of the kids like to see the different colors in the snow and they all claim that the reindeer like rainbow sprinkles the best.
In addition to these items, you can print our cute reindeer food label (below) and gift some reindeer food to friends too. (Parents can also make reindeer food and surprise their kids and help them prepare for Santa’s arrival).
To make your reindeer food you take your plastic treat bag and add 1 cup of oat, 1/4 cup of sugar and 1 tablespoon or sprinkles. Once you have the ingredients in your bag, seal it and shake it up to mix everything together. Once it is all mixed, you will have a nice supply of reindeer food on your hands.
If you would like to label your reindeer food for a gift, download and print the labels below (each printout includes 4 labels) and fold them over your bag of magical reindeer food and staple the ends to the bag.
You’ve just made reindeer food and Santa and his reindeer will be able to find their way to you on Christmas Eve after you sprinkle it outside.
