Do your kids leave out cookies and milk for Santa on Christmas eve?
Santa is very well catered for with mince pies, cookies and milk. The list goes on.
BUT, have you ever stopped to think about the reindeer’s?
Magic reindeer food is an absolute must for Christmas.
Take Care Of The Reindeer’s By Making Them Special Food
Santa get’s all the glory on Christmas eve as he is the one delivering the presents. But, the reindeer’s are the ones pulling the sleigh.
Without the reindeer’s Santa would not be able to deliver all his presents on time!
If you think about it, where would Santa be without the reindeer’s? Christmas eve would be a total disaster.
So it’s pretty important that the reindeer’s are taken care of. Sure you could leave out a carrot or two, but this is generally for Rudolf.
What about the other reindeer’s?
This year you can help keep the other reindeer’s happy by leaving them some magic reindeer food.
The reindeer’s will be able to have a good munch whilst Santa deliver’s the presents.
Free Magic Reindeer Food Printable
I have created a free magic reindeer food printable that you can attach to the bags. There is a little poem on the bag which reads:
Sprinkle on the lawn Christmas eve night
The moon will help it twinkle bright.
This will help Santa’s reindeer know
Exactly where to find your home.
Kids will love having the little poem read to them and reading it out as they sprinkle the food on Christmas eve.
Items You Need To Create Magic Reindeer Food
You can use your imagination when it comes to the food you will use, and you can be as creative as you like.
For these bags I simply used rolled oats, some small red beads and green glitter.
Mix it all together, place in a clear bag, tie with a ribbon and attach the reindeer label. It couldn’t be easier!
Keep it somewhere safe until Christmas eve then sprinkle the magic reindeer food outside just before the kids go to bed.
The kids will love being able to sprinkle this special reindeer food onto the lawn or drive away and it will all add to the anticipation of Christmas eve.
Of course, if you want to make sure that the reindeer actually eats the food, you may want to sprinkle it somewhere that you can easily clear up and dispose of it, so the kids don’t see it in the morning.
Remember to leave a few pieces of the oats around though. I like to sweep a few pieces away to make it look like the reindeer’s were messy eaters!
If you want to go the extra mile, you could even leave some of Santa’s footprints behind.
They are partners in crime after all!
Use The Magic Reindeer Food As Party Favors
If you are having a Christmas party and lots of families will be attending, this would be the perfect party favor to give the kids as they leave.
They are incredibly simple to put together, but will spread a lot of joy.
