Basically you’re just putting random stuff in a little baggie and calling it Reindeer food, the poem on the bag is what I love (In case you’re on a screen where you can’t see the picture)
Since this was totally last minute, all I had was oats. Next time I do it, I think I’ll add some sunflower seeds and maybe a few nuts, or use granola. Or go with coarse sugar or colorful sprinkles like many of you readers suggested. But hey, this was totally last minute so since reindeer are magical, I’m sure they don’t eat normal oats. And as it says in the poem, the moonlight will make it *sparkle*. So, as I saw lots of people on the internet doing, I added glitter. In retrospect, I probably should have used something like sugar sprinkles so it’s more eco (and kid)-friendly. Don’t call PETA. And don’t lecture me 🙂
Just put your reindeer food in little baggies (a sandwich bag will do) and punch a hole in the corner and tie on the tag, or do as I did here and punch two little holes and pull the ribbon through
then tie in the front
My boys love pretending to be the mail man and making deliveries so they’re going to be super excited to get to carry a basket and hand out these little magical favors. And even if you don’t make these to pass out to friends, I think it’s a super cute thing to just do at home with your kids.
