25 Days of a Crafty Christmas Day 18

Magical Reindeer Food


What you will need:
Oatmeal (I use quick cook, or what is cheap)
Sugar sprinkles*
Treat sacks
Twist ties
Ribbon
Label**

Directions:
The great thing about this project is you can make it for one child or one million. 

For one child, you will need 1/3 cup of oats and a dash or two of sprinkles.  Mix and place in treat bag or Ziploc bag.

For 15+ you will need:
One small container of oats, or half of the big container.
One container of Sugar Sprinkles*
Mix oats and sprinkles in big bowl and place in treat bags.  Tie with twist tie and add ribbon and label**.

*To make Sugar Sprinkles you can just take some regular sugar and add a few drops of food color to get the desired tint.  I purchased clear (white) sugar sprinkles and tinted half red.  In the past I used glitter but have heard the glitter can hurt the little birds that may eat it.

**For the label I found an image of a reindeer and used picnik to edit to my liking and add the text.  If you would like to use my template you can find it here.  I then used a paper punch I purchased at Michaels last year to punch out a cute scalloped circle, you will then use a hole punch to add a hole to the top.  I attached the label to the bag with ribbon.

The wording for the label is:

Magical Reindeer Food
Sprinkle on the lawn at night,
The Moon will make it sparkle Bright!
As Santa’s Reindeer fly and roam,
This will guide them to your home.


Total Cost
I was able to make 45 treat bags for $4!

FROZEN Hot Chocolate

I am sure by now, most of you know that FROZEN the Movie is coming to theaters THIS WEEK (the 27th to be exact)! I am so excited!! My girls saw some of the FROZEN merchandise while we were at Walt Disney World and that is all they could talk about.....for days! It has been a rough school year for both of the girls so far. Mads is adjusting to being in the upper elementary, was dealing with a bully and gets super frustrated with math (even though she is really good at it). MG is adjusting to actually being in school, went through a time of having accidents at school and she just misses her mommy. To celebrate Mads good grades and MG going a month accident free, I decided to treat the girls with a few fun new toys and some hot chocolate. Once I heard that FROZEN merchandise was available at Walmart, I ran to stock up. While I was there, it hit me! I could have #Frozenfun with the hot chocolate and make FROZEN Hot chocolate! I just knew the girls would love it! I was k

Le Cellier - Chedder Cheese Soup Recipe Review

I first talked about this soup here .   I have to admit, was not real eager to try this soup.  I can not stand the taste of beer.  PERIOD!  It doesn't take much in a recipe for me to be able to taste it.  With that being said, the soup wasn't bad.  I would try it with ginger ale next time though. Before I tell you what I thought of the soup I need to be fair and tell you about some changes I made to the recipe. First, the recipe tells you to cook the bacon just to render out the fats, not to make crispy.  I did not render out enough of the fats and in fact next time, I would cook the bacon until it IS crispy.  I don't like limp bacon, I like my bacon extra crispy. Second, I TOTALLY forgot to cook down the onions and celery before adding the flour!  Ummmm......ooops! So my bacon was limp and my veggies were crispy!  HAHA! Next, I am not on a budget to be able to purchase "Aged White Cheddar" so good ol Yellow Sharp Cheddar it was! I did NOT add one tablespoo

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her. Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good!   I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags. {Strawberries & Cream Instant Oatmeal}   12 Servings 6 Cups Quick Cook Oats 1 1/2 Cups Oat Powder 2 Cups Powdered Milk 1 - 1 1/2 Cup Sugar 1 Cup Freeze Dried Strawberries Directions f
