1 Cup of Quick Oats
Mix it all together and put about 1/2 cup in each bag. Just divide it up by the kids you have so there's enough for each. You can slip the tag into the bag, or attach it by a ribbon to a bag - whatever is cutest is always the way to go! The amounts are estimates, the Reindeer will eat whatever you put in those bags. It's the magic of the tradition that is most important.
The tag attached to the Magical Reindeer Dust says:
Sprinkle this reindeer dust on the lawn before bed on Christmas Eve night.
You can get my PDF for my cute little tags here.

On the mantel are more twinkle lights, but my
favourite are the little gingerbread guys. The nutcracker tradition started when I took Taylor (24) to the Nutcracker Ballet in Vancouver, he got his first one at intermission - you can see it above in red. He was only about five.

For my pussy willows outside my front door, I specifically bought twinkle lights that said the string would keep lit even if one bulb burnt out - I thought finally, yahoo it's about time. Yeah, well guess what - about 25 lights burnt out in a row. I haven't even attempted to fix the problem, every time I drive in I just think how pathetic they look. I'll buy more, I always do - and I'll hold out hope that somewhere, somehow, someone will figure a way to keep them lit.

My pussy willows in all their glory or lack of it. What can I say? It's next on my list.
