The Creative Princess: 25 Days of a Crafty Christmas Day 18

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!
