It is Christmas Eve! We are ready for time with family, lots of great food and of course, the arrival of Santa!
This year, the kids and I are making this fantastic and fun Magical Reindeer Food to sprinkle on our lawn before we drift off to dream, complete with visions of Sugar Plums dancing in our heads.
I made a lovely printable too, you can grab it for free, right here! Add this to the ziploc baggie you are going to store the food in and maybe share a few bags with neighborhood children, or any Christmas Eve Guests that believe in the magic of Christmas.

This is so easy to make. You can make it in a few different ways, depending on what you have on hand.
You will need:
2 tablespoons of Quick Oats per 'serving'
red and green sprinkles, edible glitter or colored sugar
birdseed or squirrel corn makes for a great way to add variety to the delight of the wildlife that visits your lawn.
All you need to do is add the oats to a sprinkling of colored sugar, sprinkles or edible glitter.
If you want to add a little birdseed or corn to the mix, now is the time to do it. Give everything a good stirring and divide it up into zipper sealed baggies.
At bedtime, have the kids sprinkle their Magical Reindeer Food on the lawn and make a wish.
