Last year, Grace came home from day care with a baggie labeled Reindeer Food.
Oh, how we adored that day care and those teachers.
The baggie of Reindeer Food appeared to be made from 2 parts whole oats combined with 1 part silver glitter. It had a decorative tag that explained the following:
Sprinkle reindeer food in front of your house on Christmas to attract the reindeer and ensure they stop by.
It was adorable.
Grace thought it was awesome.
She and her Aunt Amanda spread it in the snow in front of our house on Christmas Eve. She was so excited.
My sister had a brilliant idea – to throw some half-eaten carrots and reindeer poop (chocolate chips) on top of the reindeer food.
Grace was overjoyed that the reindeer food worked.
Guess who’s making reindeer food tomorrow morning?
It won’t be quite as impressive without the snow this year, but I’m pretty sure that it will still lure those reindeer to our home.
