Guide Rudolph and his team this Christmas Eve with some magical reindeer food. Sprinkle the mix of oats and other delights 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! (taking out glitter, sequins and even edible glitter means that any food left by the reindeers will not be harmful to other wildlife in your garden.


 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup porridge oats
  • Seeds
  • Dried fruit such as cranberries, raisins
  • Chilli powder - just a hint!

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:
RSPCA are urging people to make this safe version of reindeer food as even edible glitter can be harmful to 1c6eb21bb80f5c54ebe9c6653a87a299.jpgwildlife.

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