Day 10, 25 Days of Christmas Tips

10) Reindeer Food
Another Christmas tradition we had in my classroom each year was to make food for the reindeer to go along with the carrots. In a large mixing bowl, combine oats, raisins, and red and green sugar. On Christmas Eve, have the kids sprinkle it outside for Santa's reindeer.
[Helpful Hint: Since the point is that reindeer will eat this food, it might not be a good idea to spread it in the grass. Instead, spread it in the driveway so you can easily sweep some up once the kids go to bed so it's obvious the reindeer have been there when they wake up. It sure would be a pain to have to go out and painstakingly pick oats out of your grass. =)]
