Don't Forget the Reindeer

Today we went to a play date to make food for the reindeer on Christmas Eve. It was a really cute idea and the kids really enjoyed it. In fact, Kaiden keeps asking me if he can eat the reindeer food now!

The Legend of Magical Reindeer Dust
It has once been said,
That right before you go to bed.
You should sprinkle magic reindeer food,
To quickly bring Santa and his brood.
For many years the legend has been told,
To boys and girls, both young and old,
Sprinkle the food throughout your yard,
Then finding your house won’t be so hard!
The reindeer can smell the food for 100 miles,
Just do not leave it in big piles!
After you do this you must go to sleep very fast,
So Santa and his reindeer will not pass!

1 cup dry oats
1 cup sugar
glitter (or cake sprinkles so as not to harm the animals who may eat it)

Mix it all together and scatter around the outside of your home.

Use this poem to go with it:
Sprinkle on the lawn at night
The moon will make it sparkle bright
As Santa's reindeer fly and roam
This will guide them to your home.

Here's Kaiden gluing the instructions on the paper

Now on to making cookies on Thursday for Santa!
