Children’s DIY Reindeer Food -BLOGMAS DAY 23

One thing I always remember doing every Christmas Eve before bed as a child was throwing some reindeer food out on my garden. I always thought it was soooo much better than putting out some carrots and water, so here’s a simple way for children to make their own reindeer food.


What you need:

  • Oats
  • Raisins
  • Edible glitter
  • Cake decorations


The most important part of the reindeer food are the oats and raisins, to help give those reindeer enough energy for the entire night.


Then you definitely need to add a bunch of different cake decorations, or anything else that’s edible and you feel like those little reindeer would like to munch on.

Last, but not least, no one can forget to add glitter, as this is what will sparkle and glisten in the moonlight, capturing the attention of the reindeer! Just make sure that it’s an edible glitter, and not one you would use for crafts, as you don’t want those reindeer getting ill.


I love how simple this reindeer food is, and I also love the memories of getting everything prepared for Santa and the reindeer on Christmas Eve. I hope that the love of the tradition of making reindeer food on Christmas Eve will be enjoyed by another little soul now, since as a child it used to be something that I was always excited to do and get prepared.
