I LOVE this idea, so fun and simple - and very important if you want to make sure those reindeers pulling Santa's sleigh don't miss your house!
You Will Need:
Small jar, container or sealable gift bag
Red food colouring
Green food colouring
Using a fork mix a small amount of white sugar with 2 or three drops of the green food colouring until all the sugar is coloured and there are no lumps. Next do the same with a second small amount of white sugar and the red food colouring. Combine both coloured sugars together with a cup or so of the rolled oats.
Divide the 'reindeer food' between your jars and seal them. I then added a small scrap of Christmas themed fabric over the top of the lid purely for decorative purposes.
Print out small tags with the following poem and attach to the jars with a ribbon.
Make a wish and close your eyes tight,
Then sprinkle it on your lawn tonight.
As Santa's reindeer fly and roam,
This food will guide them to your home!
we have made little jars for all our cousin's, neighbors kids & friends - Have fun!
