We all remember to set out special milk and cookies to keep Santa nourished on his busy night of delivering special gifts to everyone. It is also a special way to say "Thank You" for all he does for children all around the world. But sometimes we forget that Santa doesn't use a modern rocket or jet plane to make those deliveries. He still relies on his trustworthy team of reindeer that every child knows by name. They get tired and hungry, too. So make some special reindeer food for the children at your house to sprinkle on the lawn on Christmas Eve night as a special treat to those very special animals.
Reindeer Food Recipe
- 1/2 cup of uncooked oatmeal
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 1/4 cup of red or green (or a mixture of the two) sugar sprinkles
Note: Most reindeer food recipes include glitter, but that is dangerous for the birds that may come in to eat what Santa's reindeers leave behind. So it is important to remember all of God's creatures.
