Magical Reindeer Dust

It's time to make a batch of Magical Reindeer Dust so Santa can find your house! This is a cute tradition that started when Spencer was little. On Christmas Eve, just before bed, the kids sprinkle the dust on the lawn so that the Reindeer will smell the oats and the glitter will sparkle in the moonlight to guide them to you house. It wasn't long after we sprinkled that we would hear "clatter" on the roof top!

1 Cup of Quick Oats
1/2 Cup of Sugar
1/4 Cup of Glitter
1/4 Cup Paper Confetti or Confetti Baking Sprinkles

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.
The moon will make it sparkle bright.
As Santa's reindeer fly and roam.
This will guide them to your home.

You just can't go wrong with a crystal bowl full of Reindeer Dust
It's simply magical.

You're never too old.....
