We’re having a relaxing day at home today, reading, watching Elf, filling up our backyard bird feeders, putting away laundry, building blocks… and making our annual batch of reindeer food!

Our tradition is to sprinkle the food around the yard on Christmas Eve. Santa’s reindeer get hungry from all that flying!

This is the first year that Eric has been able to help. Usually we use oats and glitter, but we decided to make ours with all edible ingredients this year and to add a few more yummies. We combined oats, dried cranberries, rainbow sprinkles, and coconut. The kiddos scooped all the ingredients into a canister and then helped to mix it. I think both of them most liked shaking the rainbow sprinkles!
