I have used a similar recipe for many years with my children. This just adds to the excitement and joy of Christmas. We also sprinkle baking soda over my husbands snow boots,and then put them away. This leaves Santa's foot prints on the carpet by the tree, or by the Christmas Stockings.

EXCELLENT FUN stuff! Can't tell you how much fun I've had doing this this evening with my little kid friend, Abi! She's 6 years old and is a real sweetie who visits us every weekend with her parents and kid bro, Aditya. She came home this evening with her parents and when I told her about this special food, my goodness, she was SO EXCITED! We went into my kitchen and got into making this: She said a special prayer to Santa too with folded hands and closed eyes n a soft sweet smile, not to mention that she asked for special gifts, promised to study well and do her homework on time(her mom was over the moon when I told her that! LOL) and promised to be a good girl all through the coming year! I gave her a choice of so many colours of glitter which we bought specially for this this evening. She chose red! So, we went by that! She thoroughly enjoyed the poem and she is so excited about it. She kept reading it aloud and practicing how to say it with my dear dad who had to leave his office and listen to her! LOL:) She gave me countless kisses and hugs and this little thing really really made her day! She doesn't have a lawn, and so, I told her to sprinkle this outside her home(near her doorstep). She'll do just that, she promised most happily. She's going to keep the poem under her soft pillow on Christmas eve and she told me secretly, she's going to wish for shoes and a singing doll from Santa. Now it's easier for me to get her just the gift she wants! THANKS SO MUCH! I've put this into my book and can't wait to email it out to my cousins' back home. This is FUN! Thanks!

What a positively adorable idea! My 2-year-old daughter was over the moon about making the reindeer a snack. Thanks!
