Ever since the kiddo was teeny tiny, we’ve always had the tradition of making reindeer food.
It’s also one of our favorite neighbor gifts! Before bed on Christmas eve, we have a couple of traditions to add to the getting ready for bed routine. We have to get the cookies and milk out for Santa. Can’t forget the carrots for the reindeer. And throwing the reindeer food off the front porch in our pj’s!
Every year, we’ve been printing one from online. This year I decided to make our own to coordinate with our Letter to Santa.
It’s such a quick and easy little gift! And the kiddo has always loved making it. I love baking, but this can come great in a pinch when you just don’t want to make that last batch cookies for the neighbors!
This is NOT edible for us human types! You’ll need sandwich bags, oatmeal, glitter and the tags! You can print the tags by clicking here.
Add a little oatmeal…
Add a little glitter….
Add the labels… Print, trim and fold the tags in half. I fold over the bag a couple of times, then staple to the back. I also add a little tape to the front of the bag to secure the front of the labels.
Is spreading the reindeer food part of your Christmas Eve tradition? It’s always fun to throw glitter, so I highly recommend it! I can’t wait to hear if you add this tradition to your own!
