Magic Reindeer Food

I wanted to do something cute for my nieces and nephew for Christmas this year. Not do something as in get them a gift but help them to celebrate since we won't be there with them for Christmas. Something to add a little fun to their Christmas Eve. I knew exactly what I wanted to do for them. My daughter had come home with something similar to this a few years back. I tweaked it to my liking and will be sending it out in a package for them this week. Had I been delivering this in person, I would have used a small jar or decorative box but since it is being shipped I decided to use snack sized ziplock baggies. There are recipes online for this but I don't see the purpose of using a recipe when all you have to do is throw some together. This is what you'll need:

Small amount of oats
Red Sugar Crystals
Green Sugar Crystals

Most recipes call for glitter but that isn't biodegradable or edible to the little outdoor creatures, that's why I prefer the sugar crystals. And then I typed this up for them.

If this is too small for you to read, clicking on the photo should open a new window and give you the option to enlarge the photo...or at least zoom in  :)

Tomorrow is the MOPS Christmas meeting! Yay! Tomorrow evening the hubs and I are planning on getting our Christmas shopping done. :) Yippppeeee!

  1. My kids asked to make some of this too. The recipe we got had raisins in it too. It also included the glitter which I figured I would omit.


I love your comments, even if they aren't in agreement with my thoughts, but please, be respectful! Thanks for reading!
