My granddaughter Kaitlynn is 8 this year and yes, she still believes in Santa. So each year, whether I participate in craft fairs or not, I have to come up with a new design for my Magic Reindeer Food packets. She loves to go outdoors on Christmas Eve and spread the food for the reindeer, anticipating the arrival of Santa's sleigh.
Inside the bag you will find some oats and sugar sprinkles. I remember when this idea debuted years and years ago, people were using glitter. If this is sprinkled on the ground and ingested by real critters, glitter is not a good idea so please use color sugars or sprinkles if you are going to create some of these for your children or grandchildren.
I used the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set to create my reindeer and cut him up with the Cookie Cutter Punch. So perfect to add to the topper of my cello bag.
And finally, the cute little poem that goes on the topper. I typed up sheets of these on Whisper White Cardstock. It's fun to read these to your children right before you open the bag to sprinkle the contents. Now what about those kiddo's that don't have a chimney for Santa? This is another great idea to make sure Santa can visit and come in the home to leave presents:
I started making these when my daughter & granddaughter lived in an apartment and Kaitlynn uses her key each year. She leaves it for Santa on the outside of the door so he can use the key to come in.
I purchased the keys on Amazon at a great price. Just search for Skeleton Keys and you'll find them. Thanks for stopping by to visit today!
