FREE Reindeer Food Tags



Reindeer food is certainly not a new idea but my kids have loved it each and every Christmas for about 10 years now. It's become a Christmas tradition to go outside before bed on Christmas Eve and pour the reindeer food out on the lawn.... waiting, waiting, waiting for those reindeer to come!

This year I decided to create a sweet little tag and poem for my kindergartner to make gifts for his classroom friends. And today, I'm going to give the designs away to my readers and Facebook fans, too. I hope it will help you with those last minute treats for your kids' class parties next week.

To make the gifts, you'll need to gather your supplies to make the reindeer food....
no worries... it's easy, peasy!


 REINDEER FOOD SUPPLIES:

- Oatmeal (I used the whole can for 21 kids)
- Bottles of Christmas colored sugars
- Christmas sprinkles
- Glitter


Pour everything together in a big bowl and stir to mix.


Employ your best helpers to spoon the mixture into small plastic bags. I found these in a pack of 100 on the wedding supplies aisle at Walmart. To keep the bag open for my little one, I used a toilet paper roll inside the bag and had him spoon the reindeer food over a plastic bowl. This caught much of the spills so that I won't find glitter and oatmeal under every crevice for the next 3 months.


Once you get your bags filled, punch holes in your printed reindeer food tags and string some ribbon or tulle through to seal off the bags and make them pretty.

The tags will explain to your child's friends just how this reindeer food works....



Here's our basket full and all ready to go.... one class down.
Now to come up with ideas for my older children's friends.

Grab your


Merry Christmas Everyone!

This is an adorable idea! We celebrate Hanukkah but I bet the kids would love to leave some reindeer food just in case Santa decided to stop by :)

I would like to ask: what program are you using to make the circle tags, or are you just stamping and then copying many times. I was trying to find a program that is easy to use. thank you, D. Cas

Love this idea, I omit the glitter and use extra sanding suger to make it totally edible for the reindeer!

Love these! :) My kids made reindeer food for their friends at church, and I just printed these tags up for them- thanks so much for sharing! :)

Thank you these are beautiful. I do this every year with my pre-K class. If I may suggest to use something other than glitter it is dangerous to the birds and other animals.

Thank you, thank you for the free printable. We are doing this for our 2nd grade class party and you just saved me from having to design one from scratch (no time)
Happy holidays and thank you for your generosity!
