This recipe is 'Magical' reindeer food. It has special powers to give them energy and makes them super strong to pull Santa's sleigh.

Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, and Blitzen all love this magic food. Rudolph can be difficult sometimes; he picks out the oats.

What you need:

2 cups regular oats
2 cups sunflower tropical birdseed mix
2 tablespoons red decorator sugar crystals
2 tablespoons green decorator sugar crystals

An excellent way to keep the kids busy is to take each of the ingredients and put them in their own bowl. Have the kids take a spoonful of each ingredient, add to bag and shake. Lip-flip sandwich bags work best so children can tie it closed with ribbon. Don't forget to attach the poem:

Sprinkle on the lawn at night
The moon will make it sparkle bright
As Santa's reindeer fly and roam
This will guide them to your home.

Or

Sprinkle on the lawn at night
The moon will make it sparkle bright
Winter Rabbits hop and roam,
This will guide them to your home.
