Christmas Creation

It's been a creative Christmas production line in our household this week with lots of glitter, cellophane and twine. I love getting the kids involved in making special Christmas gifts and of course, they have a ball.
For school friends we've made these very special Reindeer food packs to sprinkle on their lawns the night before Christmas. It's a secreat recipe but I'm happy to share it with you so long as you don't tell anyone! 

It includes oatmeal, green glitter and red glitter, mixed to just the right consistency and bundled into bags with a whole lotta love. Attached is a little poem:

"Make a wish and close your eyes tight, 
then sprinkle this on your lawn tonight. 
As Santa's reindeer fly and roam, 
this food will guide them to your home. 
The reindeer will love their oatmeal snack, 
while they are waiting for Santa to come back.
