Santa’s reindeers sometimes need a little guidance on the landing strip approach to our house.
A little bit of shiny glitter sugar or sparkles should do the trick, don’t you think?
And I’m sure they must be hungry too, so let’s make them some sparkly reindeer food.
This is a job for helpful children, as you can see.
To make reindeer food, that is also delicious for the local bird life, simply mix together:
1 cup of oats
1/2 cup of shredded coconut
1 cup of rice bubbles
1 cup of sunflower seeds
1 bag of hundreds and thousands
some sugar glitter from cake decorating shops
any kind of pretty sugar sprinkles you can find
Give it a good stir.
Purchase some cookie bags (I used size one) from your local craft shop or cake decorating store.
Print off a little recipe or verse to put in the bag.
Sprinkle on the lawn at night
The moon will make it sparkle bright
As Santa’s reindeer fly and roam
This will guide them to your home!
Scoop the reindeer mix into the bag.
Then tie it all up with a pretty ribbon and a tag.
Reindeer food makes a lovely sharing gift for your friends and neighbour’s children too.
Not long now until you can sprinkle this on the grass in preparation for a Santa and reindeer visit.
I wonder if Rudolph will be leading the pack this year?
