Magic Reindeer Food – a recipe and printable

Magic Reindeer Food

Here’s our tried and tested recipe for Magic Reindeer Food. A Christmas family tradition in the Shilton household. It’s only 8 sleeps away until Santa and his lovely reindeer take to the skies to deliver all the gifts for the good boys and girls on his nice list. Every knows that it’s pretty custom to leave a mince pie and a glass of milk out for Santa but what about the poor reindeer that do all the hard work. They’re usually left a carrot to share and between all of them, they only get a nibble each. So this year, why not make them some magical enchanting reindeer food for them all to share on your lawn whilst Santa delivers the gifts.

A handful or two of delicious porridge oats
A sprinkle of edible glitter or confetti
A spoonful of sugar

All you need is a paper gift bag or sandwich bag (adult supervision required), a bowl to mix up the ingredients and voila; a bag full of magic reindeer food to sprinkle on the lawn on Christmas Eve to guide the reindeer to your home and to fuel the rest of their journey.

I’ve also created a label which you can print off for your own magic reindeer food. All you need to do is click on the image below and right click your mouse and ‘Save Image As’ something memorable and somewhere safe on your computer. Then print it off and attach it to the bag of magic reindeer food ready for Christmas Eve.
