There is just something magical about Christmas. Some of my favorite memories revolve around this holiday season and the love, joy, and excitement on the faces of my children. I am sharing one simple yet special Christmas tradition that your kids will love — Magical Reindeer Food.

Magical Reindeer Food

A Christmas Tradition Your Kids Will Love!

 

Christmas Eve is full of fun and excitement. Children laughing and playing, making sure their stocking are hung with care, and of course waiting with great anticipation the arrival of Santa Claus.

Why not give your kids something a little magical to occupy a moment of time before they go off to dream of sugarplums in their wee little beds. This simple project is easy to prepare and uses things you may already have in your home. Plus, I have a really cute printable for you to download.

How To Make Magical Reindeer Food

What You Need:

  • Dry Oatmeal
  • Glitter
  • Mylar Confetti (something sparkly)
  • Plastic Bag with a zipper closure – snack or sandwich size
  • Free Printable Bag  Topper (see below)
  • Stapler

Directions:

  1. Print the Bag Toppers and cut them out.
  2. Mix Oatmeal , Glitter, and Confetti in a bowl.
  3. Place handfuls of the mixture into the plastic bags.
  4. Fold Bag Topper over the top of the closed bag and staple it in place.

 

Here is What You Do with the Magical Reindeer Food

On Christmas Eve, take you children out into the yard. Search the sky looking for Santa and his reindeer. Then, have them sprinkle the magical reindeer food on the ground. The glitter and confetti will sparkle in the moonlight. The shimmering light will lead the reindeer to your home.

This sweet little poem is on the printable bag topper:

Sprinkle on the lawn Christmas Eve night,
the moon will make it sparkle bright.
As Santa’s reindeer fly and roam,
magic feed leads them to your home.

Pumpkin Prayer – Halloween Activity

The Pumpkin Prayer

A Halloween Activity with God

Are you wanting to do a fun Halloween activity with your kids? How about one that puts your heart and mind in the right place? The Pumpkin Prayer is something you can do that puts God into your Halloween.

Even little children can carve pumpkins with the easy to use Pumpkin Master Carving tools that you find all over town in grocery stores, Target, Walmart, drug stores, or wherever. Everyone will have a wonderful time with this project, and it offers great hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills exercise.

The children will be proud of their creation and want to tell everyone about God’s love and the Pumpkin Prayer. The Pumpkin Prayer would be awesome for a Trunk or Treat event. Set-up a Pumpkin Prayer booth, or attach the free Pumpkin Prayer PRINTABLE to a treat bag!

On to the Activity of the day:

Help your child say the prayer with each step of the carving. Pull them into a conversation about the meaning of each stanza of the prayer. Enjoy!

 

The Pumpkin Prayer

Dear God,

Open my mind so I can learn about you;

Take away all my sin, and forgive me for the wrong things I do;

Open my eyes so Your love I will see;

I’m sorry for turning up my nose to all You have given me;

Open my mouth to tell others You’re near;

Let Your Light shine in all I say and do!

Amen

 

Let your happy little pumpkins show how much God loves you!

My hope is that you will make prayer a special and fun-filled time with your children, while you share this Pumpkin Prayer Halloween activity. Have a blessed day.
