for reindeer food is sure to be a hit! I have made it for
years and distributed to my kid's classmates. Each year on
Christmas Eve it was a big event for us to go out on our back
deck to pour half of the reindeer food and then to run to the
front to pour the remainder. So give it a try your kids
will love it too!!
You can either layer the
ingredients in a baby food jar or simply mix the ingredients
together and put them into a zip lock bag. Tie either with
a ribbon and attach the poem below
1/4 cup dry oatmeal
1/8 cup granulated sugar
1-2 tablespoons colored sugar

3 round objects (we used a
spice jar lid, the bottom of a yogurt container, and a mason jar
Craft foam, white and orange
How to Make it
Using the round objects as patterns, cut out 2 white foam
circles in each size.
2. Place one set of the circles on a flat surface,
spacing them 1/4 inch apart. With glue dots, glue a 12-inch
piece of monofilament across the circles as shown, then firmly
press the matching circles on top.
3. Use more glue dots to attach buttons and an orange
craft foam nose. With a permanent marker, draw on eyes and a
mouth. Finally, tie a ribbon scarf around the monofilament at
the neck, and then knot the line above the head to create a loop
