Christmas Eve Fun

Many families leave cookies and milk for Santa, but what about his reindeer? Be sure to take this magic reindeer food and sprinkle on the lawn on Christmas Eve. 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!

Many recipes for reindeer food use glitter but that can hurt birds and squirrels that eat the glitter. Use only edible ingredients in the reindeer food.
