Magic Reindeer Food

Every year my boys host a "writing a letter to Santa" party/fundraiser for charity, and we always have our guests make their own "Magic Reindeer Food".  It's a fun traditions, and kids love it. Today I am sharing the recipe we use, as well as the printable tags that I designed... for FREE.

The first thing we do is set up our reindeer food making station with bowls of oats, Cheerios, and little bags of red sugar crystals (aka magic dust).  Then, we let the kids follow the recipe and scoop the ingredients into little bags. Here is the recipe we print out, frame, and place on the table.

To print an 8X10 copy of this recipe, right click on the picture (above), save it to your computer, and print it like a normal photo.

Then, each guest uses a piece of ribbon to attach a fun tag to the their bag of magic reindeer food.  Here are the tags I designed this year.

To print this 8X10 sheet of magic reindeer food labels, right-click on the picture (above), save it to your computer, and print it like a normal photo.

Making magic reindeer food is a lot of fun, and it is even more fun to sprinkle it on the lawn on Christmas Eve.  It's a great way to help Santa find your home!
