Reindeer Food

I made this cute little craft with Timmy and the children I babysit last Friday, when they were all home on a p.d. day. For the last couple of years Timmy has sprinkled this on our lawn on Christmas Eve to help Santa's reindeer find their way to our house.

Basically, you simply layer oats, sugar and red and/or green baking sprinkles in a small jar. We added a bit of fabric to our lid and wrapped it with a pipe cleaner. Then added this little poem, that I found online...

Sprinkle on the lawn at night
the moon will make it sparkle bright.
Santa's reindeer fly and roam,
this will guide them to your home.

Have a crafty day!
