Reindeer Food

   To a little one who believes in Santa, no Christmas would be complete unless there was some food for Santa & his reindeer.  Of course, most children leave Santa cookies and some leave a carrot or too for the reindeer.  But, what reindeer wants carrots?   How about oats?   Magical oats...
  I made up some packets of reindeer food for my granddaughters and their cousins as well as a co-worker's three children.
     An up close shot of the sentiment.

   What makes these oats magical? I used the sugar one sprinkles on Christmas cookies.  Many people use glitter, but I am trying to be ecologically friendly.  Besides a few of the children are under three & just might try to eat it.

   I hope Santa finds your home.  Make sure you sprinkle some oats on Christmas Eve.   Wishing everyone a Very Merry Christmas!

So glad I came by today - I told the kids that we would make this and it's not in my plan because I forgot. So! - it's now on the list for today. We've got oatmeal...and we've got glitter - which I am more than happy to get rid of ha! No pretty packaging like yours though; maybe next year ;)
