Making your own magic reindeer food is a lovely Christmas Eve tradition!
Sprinkle it on your front lawn on Christmas Eve and the glitter will shine in the moonlight – guiding Santa and his reindeer to your house! And what’s more, this recipe is completely edible and safe for animals so you don’t need to worry about what creatures may eat it if you sprinkle it on the grass!
Read on for our magical recipe and free printable labels!
How to make animal-safe reindeer food
What you need
- 1 cup of oats
- 1 teaspoon of edible glitter
- Clear cellophane bags
- Our free printable labels
What to do
Start with a clear cellophane bag (cut a couple of centimetres off the top if necessary).
Next, pour some oats into the bag.
Then pour in the edible glitter and shake it all up! We prefer red or green glitter as they’re the most Christmassy colours!
Next, cut out our free printable reindeer food labels.
Finally, fold over the top of the cello bag to seal it, fold your free printable reindeer food label over the top of the bag and staple it in place. And that’s it! Your homemade reindeer food is ready to sprinkle on your lawn on Christmas Eve!
Always use edible glitter that is safe for reindeer and other wildlife to consume (you never who may end up eating your reindeer food if you sprinkle it on the lawn!)
If it’s a rainy night, make sure you sprinkle your reindeer food on the grass and not on the driveway (if it rains overnight, you don’t want to wake up to porridge all over the drive!)
