Snowman Soup, and Reindeer Food

I found these on

I made the Reindeer Food for my sunday school and they LOVED it!
(I know I wasn't supposed to use glitter, but nothing else was making it sparkle like it should, I'll try making it with more colored sugar next year, and no glitter.)

Many families leave cookies and milk for Santa, but what about his reindeer? Magic Reindeer Food lays a glittering path to guide the reindeer on Christmas Eve.

[Note: while many recipes for Magic Reindeer Food call for craft glitter, this ingredient can harm birds or wildlife if ingested. Substitute colored sugar crystals and be kind to animals!]
In a small zipper food storage bag or empty shaker container, mix:

1/2 cup uncooked oatmeal
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup red or green sugar crystals (for cake decorating)

Add this poem or print multiple copies of the Reindeer Food Gift Tag:

Be sure to take this magic food and sprinkle on the lawn,
On Christmas, Santa's reindeer travel miles before the dawn.
The smell of oats and glitter path will guide them on their way
And you'll wake up to Santa's gifts next morn on Christmas Day!

The snowman soup does sound cute. I might have to give that a try myself. :)
