The holiday season is upon us and if you’re ready to start celebrating with your family, why not do a fun craft project? We love making crafts with our children and to help you get in the holiday spirit, we think you’ll love this recipe/craft idea for Magic Reindeer Food! As a family favorite, this stocking stuffer is sure to delight everyone in your family, not to mention, spread some holiday cheer!
Here’s what you’ll need:
Paper or index cards
Plastic baggies (or small clear food packages)
1/2 cup uncooked oatmeal
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup red or green sugar crystals (as used for cake decorating)
In a plastic bag, combine together the oatmeal, sugar, and sugar crystals. Shake well and seal the bag using ribbon or the zip lock. Then, tie ribbon around the top of the bag so that it forms a pouch. Then, take the paper or index card, cut around it with craft scissors to make a playful border, and write the following message on it using the markers. Feel free to decorate the index card with a holiday theme
Be sure to take this magic food and sprinkle on the lawn,
On Christmas, Santa’s reindeer travel miles before the dawn.
The smell of oats and glitter path will guide them on their way
And you’ll wake up to Santa’s gifts next morn on Christmas Day!
Once that’s done, punch a hole in the corner of the index card or paper and use ribbon to tie it to the top of the pouch. This makes the label for the magic reindeer food! That’s it – you’re done!
