Magic Reindeer Food

Our daughter (four) made some comments recently that made me to believe she needed some Christmas magic. So I decided to make some Magic Reindeer food with her. It was easy to do and since it is baking season I had all the ingredients here already.  She had fun and is looking forward to Christmas eve to leave it out for the reindeer.

In a small ziploc bag or baby food container, mix:

  • 1/4 cup oatmeal
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • sprinkle of red or green sugar crystals (for cookie decorating)

This also makes a great gift. You can create tags and add them to the bags when gifting.

I created the tags on picmonkey. The poem on the tag says

Magic Reindeer Food

Sprinkle on the lawn at night

The moon will make it sparkle bright

Santa’s reindeer will fly and roam

This will help them find your home


Add some magic to your Christmas and make yours to share 🙂

Happy holidays!

  7. Super cute idea! I will definitely do these with my kids. When I was a kid, we always left a carrot out for Rudolph with Santa's cookies but nothing for the other reindeer.
