I’ve been sharing some of our favorite kids Christmas traditions with you this month. Yesterday I shared our Christmas Eve boxes tradition and today I have another really fun tradition for you, Santa’s magic reindeer food!
This magic reindeer food recipe isn’t meant to eat, but to throw out in the yard for Santa’s reindeer on Christmas Eve! My kids always look forward to putting out cookies and milk for Santa and tossing out magic reindeer food and carrots for his reindeer! Those reindeer have to fly Santa all around the world in one night and they certainly deserve some good snacks along the way!
You can make this magic reindeer food with your kids or make it and package it up and tuck it inside their Christmas Eve boxes so they can put it out that night! Either way it is tons of fun!
Transfer it over to a clear bag (I used these clear party bags) and roll the top down to close it.
Sidenote-I also highly recommend trying Hp’s Instant Ink program (which is what I use) to save on ink. Get your first month of ink FREE by using my referral link: http://try.hpinstantink.com/dNnP7 Pay as low as $2.99 a month to print whatever you like, including full color pages, photos, etc without worrying about how much ink you use. Once you get low they send you ink cartridges as often as you need (at no extra cost!).
Cut them out into 4 bag toppers.
Fold each one in half and use a stapler to secure it to the top of your folded bag.
On Christmas Eve sprinkle these on the lawn and toss out some carrots too so the reindeer have a nice snack on their busy night! The reindeer food poem reads:
Sprinkle on the lawn at night,
The moon will make it sparkle bright,
as Santa’s reindeer fly & roam,
this will guide them to your home!
