Making Reindeer Food!

We are quickly approaching Christmas!  That means we are busy and there is a lot of excitement in our house!  Whether it's making a gift, decoration, or cooking we have been working on something for Christmas everyday this week.  Or at least I have!  On our advent calendar today was "make reindeer food".  My kids love to do this and it is so simple.  We made some for our friends, too. 

Here is what you need: Oatmeal, glitter or colored sugar, a bowl and baggies.

Put oatmeal in a bowl . . .

We used about 3 cups of oatmeal (made 6 baggies). . .

Add glitter . . .

Lots of it.  You can never have too much glitter!

Mix well 
(glitter will sink to bottom so keep stirring) . . .

 Pour in baggies . . .

Reindeer food! 

Just sprinkle in your yard so Santa's reindeer will be able to find your house!

I found this cute poem and printable on line here.

The girls can't wait to give these to their friends!  

Now, just baking, baking, baking tomorrow!
