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!
I forgot to rate this at Christmas time. This was easy and my kids loved sprinkling it on the lawn. Thanks for such fun recipe.
I did this slightly differently this year. We put the oats out in a bowl for the reindeer to eat and then when my girls went to bed I emptied the oats all over the lawn and then sprinkled the glitter everywhere. The girls love it in the morning waking up to find Christmas Reindeer glitter sprinkled everywhere.
What a cute idea! I wish I had kids so I could watch their faces as they sprinkle this on the lawn! But until then, I am making a batch to share with my BF's 4 year old nephew for Christmas. I can't wait to see his face as we read the poem to him. Thank you!
This is such a cute idea, I will be passing this idea on to my friend who works with children, they will love this at Christmas time. Thank you for sharing!
I made this for my 2 YO DD this year and my 11 YO niece who stayed with us for Christmas eve. We live in Florida, so I have to make sure that this stuff fades into the grass. It worked great! Everyone loved going to different sides of the house and sprinkling this in the wind! It was a really nice touch and I'm sure this will be a tradition from now on! Thank you!!
We've been sprinkling this reindeer food on our lawn for years! It works! Santa's reindeer can easily find our house, and they look forward to the treat while Santa is busy inside.
Great fun! My 5 year old GD took it to all her friends at school for their Christmas Party. Now Santa's sure to find their house!
