2025_image1.jpgMagic Reindeer Food Recipe

Guide Rudolph and his team this Christmas Eve with some magical reindeer food. Sprinkle the mix of oats and edible glitter in the garden - the glimmer in the moonlight will light the way for Santa and his sleigh and the reindeer will have something to eat after all their hard work!


 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup porridge oats
  • 1 tsp edible red glitter
  • 1 tsp edible green glitter

Method:

 

  1. You will need some granulated sugar and some different coloured liquid food colouring.
  2. Place the sugar in a small bowl and add several drops of food colouring (add more depending on how bright you want the result to be).
  3. Stir well with a fork until all the sugar is coloured.Allow the coloured sugar to dry and then seal in an air tight container.
  4. Mix oats and glitter in a small bowl until combined.
  5. Spoon into a snack-size ziplock bag and seal carefully.
  6. Make a label and attach to bag of oats and glitter using a stapler.


On Christmas Eve, sprinkle your Magic reindeer food outside while reciting the special poem (print it on the label.)

Then snuggle down in bed and listen out for sleigh bells!

Notes:
Be sure to use edible glitter (the sort that you can decorate cakes with) as craft glitter can be harmful to wildlife.

If Christmas Eve is damp, sprinkle your Magic reindeer food on grass, not a pathway or paved area as the rain could turn your glittery oat mix into 2025_image2.jpgporridge!
