Here is an easy way to make reindeer food that you can pop into Christmas Eve boxes or leave out for Rudolph.


  • A glass bowl for mixing the ingredients together.


    To assemble the reindeer food, follow these steps:

  1. Mix equal parts oats, glitter and sprinkles in a plastic bag or small container.
  2. Close the bag or container and shake it to distribute the glitter evenly.
  3. Place the reindeer food in a small bag or container
  4. Make a label that reads 'Reindeer Food' - I use Canva to make my creations (don't worry, it's free)


Note: Be sure to use biodegradable glitter or omit it altogether to avoid harming local wildlife.
