Simple and sweet.
Let’s not forget the reindeer on Christmas Eve! They like treats to and work really hard. This is our Reindeer Dust this year!
Honey Nut Cherrios
Oats (Like from Oatmeal)
Now you may see some recipes that include glitter but that sticks to the oats and food and while it’s pretty and shiny it’s not good for the little animals that may be eating these sweet treats left on your front yard. We take it outside and sprinkle it all around the yard. The sugar sprinkles add sweetness and trust me- this “dust” will be gone when you wake the next morning.
Reindeer Dust Poem 1
Make a wish and close your eyes tight,
Sprinkle this on your lawn Christmas Eve night,
As Santa and his reindeer roam,
This sparkly dust will lead them to your home,
The reindeer will love their oatmeal snack,
While they are waiting for Santa to come back.
One of my favorites – Reindeer Poems 2
On Christmas Eve before you sleep,
Step outside and take a peek.
Can you see them? Are they near?
You don’t think so? Never fear!
While still outside do this simple deed:
Sprinkling this packet is a must,
The Reindeer will see the sparkly glow of the dust,
Along with the smell of oats in the air,
That will for sure lead Santa with care.
Reindeer Dust Poem No. 3
Scatter this upon the ground
Remember not to make a sound
Go to bed like good girls and boys
And see if Santa brings some toys.
