We’re enjoying getting Boo all excited about the basics of Christmas. We’ve put up our tree, made our cards and are slowly working our way through making some gifts for family.
One of the things that we always did when I was little was to leave out a snack for Father Christmas and his reindeer. On Christmas morning we would wake up to find bits of left over carrot and crumbs from the eaten mince pies :)
For today’s activity I thought that I would get Boo to make something extra special for 'Santa' and his little herd of helpers.
What You’ll Need
- Porridge oats
- Glitter – whatever colours you like
- Plastic bags and fasteners – we used sweet bags and loom bands
This was a lovely activity as you simply need to mix everything together (oats and glitter). We got time to sit down and talk about why we were making the reindeer food and enjoy a glittery 'cooking' session.
Stir, Stir, Stir!
So when Christmas Eve arrives we’ll be outside with our reindeer food making sure our lawn is twinkling away for Ruldolph and his friends…..
“Sprinkle on the lawn at night, the moon will make it sparkle bright. As Santa’s reindeer fly and roam, this will guide them to your home… “
