Reindeer Food & Other Fun

This was a really fun craft that we made this year, it also doubles as a cute little Christmas Gift.
You need-
10c. oatmeal, regular
1c. brown sugar
1/4t. salt
1/4 bottle red sugar sprinkles
1/4 bottle green sugar sprinkles

Mix all together well, place 1c. of the mix into a disposable icing bag,
and tie shut with a pretty ribbon. This makes 10 bags of Reindeer Food.

I used my computer to make cute tags for these. The directions on the tag
say to sprinkle half of the contents of the bag over your front lawn for
Santa's reindeer, the remaining food you save for your Christmas Morning
Breakfast- to prepare you mix 1/2c. water with the remaining oats, stir- cook
in the microwave for about 1 min.

These were a lot of fun, we made them at home & as a craft project for my
3rd graders Christmas Party at school & the kids loved making them.

For Teachers gifts this year we made each of them a pkg of Candy Cane Cocoa Mix,
which I have the recipe for here- Candy Cane Cocoa Mix.
Also a bag of Reindeer Food, an Herb Rice In a Jar Mix-
And a pkg of Freeze dried Snowballs for their Cocoa.
Happy Holidays!

They were a lot of fun, & they got me out of making a ton of cookies! (which I feel compelled to test each batch) :)

I like that one too! My Hubby said it was gross and wouldn't let us do that, so we "freeze dried snowballs" instead, lol. Have you seen the reindeer poop one? There is a whole site with poop poems, too funny :)

Thank you!!!
