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.

Easter Jelly Bean Prayer Poem

Easter is a joyous celebration for Christians around the world, and in this happy remembrance I wanted to share a special little treat with you today, the Easter Jelly Bean Prayer Poem.

Easter Jelly Bean Prayer Poem

An Easy DIY Sweet Treat

 

This  DIY project is perfect for handing out a special little Easter treat. Think, school treats, party favors, and more, plus it is super easy. You just need to gather a few things and devote a minimal amount of time.

 

 

Here’s what you need:

  • Container (bag, box, or jar)
  • Jelly Beans
  • Printable Poem
  • Paper and / or Cardstock
  • Glue Stick
  • Ribbon or Stapler

 

This is how you put them together:

You can use bags, jars, or even cute boxes for these treats.

 

Cutting and Trimming the Paper and Cardstock:

  • Print off your Easter Jelly Bean Prayer Poem printable
  • Cut out the poem (I used decorative scissors).
  • Using a paper cutter, cut the cardstock in half vertically.
  • Take each vertical piece, and cut in half horizontially. (This will be the size you use for bags).
  • If making tags for jars or boxes, you can cut each piece in half again.

 

For Bags:

  • Trim cardstock with decorative scissors (if desired). Make sure the cardstock is longer than the poem so you have room to fold it to fit over the bag.
  • Glue the poem to the cardstock (again, leaving blank space at the top of the cardstock).
  • Fill bag with jelly beans (be sure all colors mentioned in the poem are present).
  • Fold the top of the cardstock to fit over bag.
  • Staple  cardstock to the bag.

 

For Jars or Boxes:

  • Trim the cardstock with decorative scissors (if desired).
  • Glue the poem to the cardstock.
  • Punch a hole in the corner of the tag.
  • Run ribbons through the hole.
  • Fill the jar or box with jelly beans (be sure all colors mentioned in the poem are present).
  • Tie the tag to the box or jar.
