One of my favorite Christmas traditions is Reindeer Food. On Christmas Eve my kids sprinkle throw Reindeer Food all over our front yard to help guide Santa’s reindeer to our house. Santa’s reindeer are attracted by the glitter that sparkles in the moonlight and the smell of the oats. Hey, Santa get’s cookies and milk, I think the reindeer deserve a treat as well. After all pulling Santa’s sled all night long has to make them hungry.

Making Reindeer Food is simple. You only need Oatmeal, Glitter and a Jar or other container.
