Santa’s reindeer get hungry on their long journey around the world on Christmas Eve. Make some reindeer food to keep them happy while Santa is at your house.
One of my family’s most favorite memories is making reindeer food for Santa’s crew and sprinkling it in the grass on Christmas Eve. Sure we got some funny looks from the neighbors but once we explained that we were leaving food for hungry reindeer, they completely understood.
For the last few years I would make up a few batches of our famous reindeer food and wrap it up for favors for our holiday open house guests to take home. I love adding this homemade tag so people know it’s specifically for the reindeer. Everything in the mixture is edible but uncooked oats are all that tasty to people, though I hear reindeer love them!
Once you sprinkle the food, head inside and treat yourself to some hot chocolate. It’s a great way to warm up and get cozy before bed.
If you plan to wrap it up, use this cute printable to make it into gifts. Tie cellophane bags with holiday ribbon and attach the tag. It will print with 4 on the page.
- 3 cups rolled oats

- 1 Tablespoon white sparkling sugar
- Assorted Christmas sprinkles
- In a small bowl, mix all ingredients. Divide among cellophane bags and attach printable tag.
- On Christmas Eve, sprinkle Reindeer Food on lawn for Santa's reindeer to enjoy.
