Magic Reindeer Food 

Sprinkle Magic Reindeer Food on the lawn on Christmas Eve - it creates a glittering path and a tasty snack for Rudolph and the other reindeer!Oh, the magic is in the air and the joy of Christmas is in full swing! One of the best parts of the holidays is seeing the excitement in children’s eyes as they get ready for Christmas Eve and Christmas morning.

A few years ago I came across this fun idea for Magic Reindeer Food (or Magic Reindeer Dust).  I made up a batch, whipped together a printable and gave them to two of my sons and a niece and nephew.  Now, only one of my sons is still of that age but I have a lot more nephews (4 total to be exact) and 1 niece that will be sprinkling reindeer food this year to lead Santa to their homes.

What Do You Use for Reindeer Food?

That’s the perfect question. What do reindeer eat? 

Legend has it that Santa’s reindeer like to eat healthily and love oats. In order to attract them to your yard, sprinkle some of this easy recipe on the lawn.

The first few times I made this I used regular glitter without thinking about animals potentially eating it but now I use the edible glitter or colored sugar and that way it is safe as can be.

Lots of Printable Options to Choose From Below – just click and download

I made a few different printables – the first one can be printed out, a hole punched in the top corner, and tied to a bag of the Magic Reindeer Food.  The next two can be printed out, folded in half and then stapled to bags of Reindeer Food.  Each set prints out four tags.Magic Reindeer Food Poem and Printable

Poem 1

Come December 24th as Santa flies 

here from the North, here’s what you do, it isn’t hard ~ just sprinkle this stuff in your yard…the sparkles draw old Santa

near and oats attract his reindeer…then

you just wait ~ they’re on their way.

P.S. Merry Christmas

Poem 2

Sprinkle this reindeer food outside tonight.  

The moonlight will make it sparkle bright.

As the reindeer fly and roam, this will guide them to your home.
