It’s Christmas Eve, Smarties and the fun will really begin tonight while putting the little ones to bed. My hubby and I L-O-V-E Christmas Eve! We crack open a bottle of wine and enjoy the ride!
The last thing our children do before bedtime is sprinkle reindeer food all across the lawn. It’s their last dose of Christmas to-do’s and they do this up, along with the cookies for Santa. Sprinkled on the lawn on Christmas Eve, magic reindeer food leaves a sparkling path for Rudolph and all of his friends. And the kids love it!
How do you make reindeer food? Here is the recipe from our friends at Southern Living:
Eco-friendly Magic Reindeer Food:
Sprinkle on the lawn at night
The moon will make it sparkle bright
As Santa’s reindeer fly and roam
This will help guide them to your home!
2 cups regular oats
2 cups sunflower tropical birdseed mix (if you don’t have this, just omit and it will be just fine:-)
2 T red decorator sugar crystals
2 T green decorator sugar crystals
Note: Avoid glitter since it can harm other animals who may ingest along the way:-)
This recipe makes four cups, perfect for my fam! Also, don’t forget to track Santa tonight!
Enjoy this fun day of anticipation! Merry, merry! Love, CSP
