Don’t Forget Santa’s Reindeer On Christmas Eve
Making Reindeer Food on Christmas Eve is a fun, budget-friendly activity to share with family, friends, and especially young children.
The hustle and bustle of the holiday season is a joyful time but can be stressful for many. Shopping, decorating, and traveling can be overwhelming, making it hard to slow down and enjoy the moment. However, each Christmas that passes is a unique opportunity to create cherished memories with friends, family, and especially young children.
One easy, low-stress, no-fuss reindeer feed and fun activity that is always a hit with young children is preparing Reindeer Food on Christmas Eve.
Do Not Forget Dancer, Prancer and The Others
Santa always gets the cookies and milk on Christmas Eve, but what about Dancer and Prancer? Santa’s reindeer work every bit as hard as the big guy on Christmas Eve, yet rarely are remembered. Reindeer Food is the answer, and it is a fantastic activity to add to your family’s Christmas Eve traditions. The best part about making Reindeer Food is that anything goes. All it takes is a little imagination, a few dry food items, a container, wrapper, or treat bag.
Fun Reindeer Feed & Fun Activities
Reindeer Food Bags
Here’s one low-cost example: Using an everyday sandwich bag, mix a few tablespoons of uncooked oatmeal with some colorful cookie sprinkles, and dried herbs from your spice cabinet. Finally, tie off the sandwich bag with a piece of holiday ribbon and a nametag.
This activity can be as elaborate or as simple as you’d like. It’s also a great activity for visiting grandparents to do with grandkids they don’t see very often. Make one large bag to feed all of Santa’s reindeer or make individual bags for each reindeer. Place the bags near Santa’s cookies, or take the Reindeer Food outside and sprinkle it evenly around your yard as a bonus activity before bedtime.
The ingredients available for this project are limitless. Bird food is another excellent choice, or try uncooked rice, cereal, popcorn, and even dry dog or cat food. (Don’t forget this is Reindeer Food, not people’s food) Use plastic sandwich bags or decorate small treat bags with stickers and colorful markers.
Need a fun activity for a youth group? Make a batch with the kids at a holiday get-together, or you can make bags of Reindeer Food to share with your friends, neighbors, and co-workers. Decorating nametags for each reindeer is a fun add-on too.
No matter the situation, making Reinder Food for Christmas Eve is a fantastic, simple way to create memories with young children that will last a lifetime. Dancer, Prancer, and the rest of Santa’s reindeer will undoubtedly be thankful.
