Reindeer Food

I have to say, I have been getting good use out of my glitter this holiday season, and I am pretty pumped about that. Several years ago, when my now teenage niece was just a little girl, we started this great family tradition of making reindeer food. I want to say the idea originated from a craft fair, but it was seriously like the best Christmas craft that ever happened to us, and it is super easy and fun. It's great for little kids. Once it is made, sprinkle it around your yard. It will sparkle especially brightly in the moonlight and the snow, and guide Santa's reindeer right to your house.

-quick cooking oats
-a container for the reindeer food (jar, bag, Tupperware, etc.)

1. Pour about 3/4 cup of quick oats into a bowl.

2. Sprinkle glitter into the bowl. We added multiple colors, so the color and amount is completely up to you.

 3. Mix it around with a spoon.

 4. Pour the reindeer food into a container. This makes a great gift, and you can even jazz it up by pouring it into a jar, adding a ribbon, and making a label.
