Magic Reindeer Food Recipe

A clear glass bowl of Reindeer Food, next to a red plate of cookies and a glass of milk.

Experience the joy of Christmas with the kids this year with a magic reindeer food recipe. This super easy, three ingredient recipe isn’t for people–it’s for reindeer! You can tell the kids that the magic reindeer food recipe will help guide Santa’s reindeer to your house. Shake up a batch and sprinkle it in the yard for a glittery, festive, and fun activity.

1/3 c. uncooked oatmeal
1/3 c. sugar
1/2 c. red or green sugar crystals

  1. Combine everything together in a bag or an empty container and shake, shake, shake!

Take the kids out into the yard and have them sprinkle the magic reindeer food all over the yard. They can make paths for the reindeer to follow from the street to the front door, or even make cool patterns. When the kids are done sprinkling the food, have them read this poem out loud to let the reindeer know that they’re welcome.

Reindeer Food Poem

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 our home.

Another benefit? What the reindeer don’t eat, the birds certainly will over the next few days!
