Reindeer Food {easy Christmas craft}!

338 Flares 338 Flares ×

I made a few of these to give to some of the little ones that were going to be at my sister’s for Thanksgiving yesterday and made a few for my little ones.  It took just a few minutes, was very inexpensive, and will hopefully put a smile on some precious faces on Christmas Eve.

List of supplies:  Card stock, printer, oatmeal (cheap, cheap, cheap-I purchased mine at Aldi’s}, silver glitter, cello bags and a stapler.  I printed out the adorable Reindeer bag topper available at Crafty Carnival.  There are other free downloads available in this set including a Letter to Santa…too cute for words!

I mixed approximately 4 cups of oatmeal with a small tube of silver glitter and divided it up into the cello bags.  Print out your Reindeer Food toppers {there are 2 per page}, cut out, score, fold over and staple to the tops of your bags.  You could also make your own toppers using tags, wrapping paper scraps and embellish as desired.  The sky and your imagination are the limit.  glitter hugs, mb.

I posted this over at Blisfully Domestic {always a great place to find OODLES of info} so be sure to stop over there but please come back here…I get lonely!

  1. This is so cute! My daughter’s preschool gave her something like this last year and it was so much fun to see how excited she was to sprinkle it in the yard on Christmas Eve.

  3. Cute idea! Will have to check out the site – I’m doing an entire month of posts on how to make Christmas more meaningful – crafts will be soon on the list!

  4. That is such a clever idea, and the kids will get such a kick out of it.

  5. My kids are too big to do this now but I think we did it once when they were preschool/kindergarten age. It’s such a cute idea!!

  6. Cute craft. I might use this as a favor for our “Happy Birthday Party.”

  7. I heard about reindeer chow from a coworker. They live on a ranch, so the kids were all on board! She instructs her sons to sprinkle in a small pile. That way, after lights out, she goes back to mess the oats all up & spreads them around (with an old broom usually). You know reindeer aren’t neat eaters! ;)

  8. I make this every year for all the little ones in my life – BUT…I use colored sugar instead of glitter since real animals tend to stop by and sample the food. Glitter isn’t a healthy snack for critters :)

    The sugar (I use red and green) is just as sparkly as glitter and I can always find big tubs of it in the Christmas baking aisle.
