Magic Reindeer Food

This was the perfect thing for Jacob to take to his preschool friends today. We had everything to do it at home and it took 15 minutes from start to finish.

I used glitter glue in a baggy (I didn't have sparkle sugar or regular glitter) and mushed it up with oats - I did a batch of gold oats and a batch of sparkly green oats. After they dried, I put a small scoop of plain oats in a snack sized bag with a bit of gold sparkle oats and green sparkle oats, then stapled the label on and wrote Jacob's name. DONE! and Jacob and I are both excited. The poem on the back says

Sprinkle on your lawn Christmas Eve night,

The moon will make it sparkle bright!

As Santa's reindeer fly and roam,

This magic food will guide them to your home.

and Jacob is sure this is going to work.

I got the idea and the FREE download for the label here.

Idea for a neighbor (with small kids) gift: take one of these baggies, along with some "human reindeer food" (Muddy Buddies in a bag with a pretty bow and a tag). Food for the people and the reindeer!
