Christmas Advent Activities: Make Reindeer Food

Years ago in one of my first classrooms I came across a cute idea for making Magic Reindeer Food.

1 cup dry oatmeal
3 tablespoons red sugar
3 tablespoons green sugar
(You can substitute the sugar with glitter, just don't tell any PETA members)

In the classroom I would attach this poem with a ribbon to the bag holding the children's food:

Sprinkle this reindeer food outside tonight,
The moonlight will make it sparkle bright.
As the reindeer fly and roam, 
This will guide them to your home.

I made this last year with the girls and my nephews who are Bookworm's age and they all had such fun. Bookworm asked me a few weeks ago if we were going to make the food for Santa's reindeer so I'm looking forward to telling her one night that we are making this off my "special list!"

Andi and Brad have been married since 2002. They have five squishers who keep them on their toes. She is a second generation home educator. In her spare time Andi creates and sells handmade goodies in her shop, Andi Gould Designs.
