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!

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

Getting ready for summer with #MyHartstrings #cbias

Is it warming up where you are?  It has been warming up here for a few weeks now.  With spring break over and the temps slowly getting warmer and warmer, it can only mean one thing.... SUMMER is just around the corner! We like to spend our summers at the lake or at the pool.  Last year we practically lived in our bathing suits!  Since we spent SO much time in our suits last year, they were looking a little warn by the end of summer.  Plus both girls have grown so much this year, they needed new suits. I have been peeking at some suits on Hartstrings.com and decided to go ahead and get new suits!  We may be going to Houston soon so the girls will need something for that trip.  It was REALLY hard to decide on what suit to get the girls, they have such cute options.  Mads is old enough to pick for herself (somewhat) and MG really doesn't care as long as it includes pink. I pulled up Hartstrings.com and let the girls have at it.  I did guide MG into the green and p
