Making magic reindeer food has become a fun Christmas Eve tradition in our home and makes a great small gift or holiday party favor. The kids can even make it themselves and give it to their friends. Last year, we attended a Christmas party where the hostess set up a cute station for the kids to put together their own reindeer food. It was a huge hit and fun activity!
Depending on how big your jars are, you may need more or less “food” so adjust this to your jar size.
For this craft you’ll need:
* 1/2 cup oatmeal
* 2 tablespoons red sugar sprinkles
* 2 tablespoons green sugar sprinkles
* small jar or Ziploc bag
* ribbon or string to tie tag
* jingle bells (optional)
* Free Reindeer Food Printable Label found here
Layer the oats, sprinkles. and colored sugar in a small jars and attach this cute label/tag! Both jar styles are available at Michaels Crafts for around $1 each before coupons.
Have the kids sprinkle some magic food outside on Christmas Eve for Santa’s reindeer! They’ll need some fuel for the big night! 😀
