Kids leave cookies and milk for Santa, but what about his reindeer?  Sprinkled on the lawn on Christmas Eve, Magic Reindeer Food leaves a glittering path--and a sweet snack--for Rudolph and friends.  An inexpensive stocking stuffer, Magic Reindeer Food makes a great classroom or Secret Santa gift.

Magic Reindeer Food Recipe

In a small zipper food storage bag or empty shaker container, mix:
  • 1/2 cup uncooked oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup red or green sugar crystals (as used for cake decorating)
[Note: many Internet recipes for Magic Reindeer Food call for craft glitter, which can harm birds or wildlife if ingested. For safety, substitute colored sugar crystals and be kind to animals!]

**I use 3x4 ziploc bags found in the craft department of Walmart.
