Children love making reindeer food at Christmas time as it attracts Santa’s reindeers when it is sprinkled outside on Christmas Eve. Here is a simple reindeer food recipe and printable bag topper that you might like to use. Of course children can make them for themselves or give them as gifts to friends. Can you name all the reindeers? I get a bit confused after Donna and Blitzen. Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer would have to be one of my favourite songs though. Fortunately this reindeer food attracts all of Santa’s reindeers. 😉 So let me share with you how to make this reindeer food. It’s super simple and we know from experience that reindeers find it attractive and delicious. Children will be developing their skills in scooping, pouring and mixing ingredients. Such a simple recipe for kids to make. For a little something extra, don’t forget to print off my adorable reindeer bag topper.
