Making Reindeer Food

We've got the cookies all baked & decorated for Santa & this morning we decided to make a little treat for Rudolph & all of his reindeer friends as well.
So easy... and the girls had so much fun. They are more than excited to scatter this all over the lawn (snow) for the reindeer to snack on while stopped at our house. They even had a little taste themselves!

Supplies- Sugar, Oats, Red/Green Sprinkles, Measuring Cup, Ziploc Bags or some other form of storage.

Mix 1/2 cup oats...

With 1/2 cup sugar....

Add some festive color with sprinkles (we used red & green)...

And mix well....
Place the reindeer food into a small ziploc bag & store with Santa's cookies until Friday night when it will be time to leave it all out!
Here is a cute little poem I got from a teacher friend to go along with the reindeer creation...

Make a wish & close your eyes tight
Then sprinkle on your lawn tonight
As Santa's reindeer fly & roam
The food will guide them to your home!

We're definitely ready for their arrival & the girls are soooo excited.
Enjoy the countdown this week. We sure will be!!
