My girls have always been very worried about making sure that not only Santa received some homemade cookies when he visited, but that his reindeer were fed as well. We used to leave carrots till I heard about special reindeer food. It is super easy to make and the best part is, that after you sprinkle it on the lawn, it glitters and shows Rudolph where to land.
Clean Jar with lid
Start with a clean jar, I am using one from a pasta sauce. You can pick whatever size you like, the larger the jar, the more you can fill it. Start with some oats and then add regular sugar. To make the jar prettier, I add some colored sugar on top of that. Repeat the layers till your jar is full. We used some jewely thingys (I have no clue as to their actual name) and glued to the side. You cna even use sticky foam pieces for this part. For the cover we cut a piece of felt and held it in place with a rubber band. Wrap yarn around a few times to hide the rubber band and tie in a bow. Attach the directions to the jar.
I hope the kiddos enjoy this easy and simple treat they can offer Rudolph for Christmas.
