Deer Friends {Magic Reindeer Food}

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!
Great gift idea for neighborhood kids!
Supplies Needed to make 5 bags:
2 1/2 C. rolled oats
5 zip lock baggies
Printed Poem on white paper
Red paper to frame poem
Glitter (any or all colors)
Any type of confetti (mine are cut-outs of Santa carrying his sack)
Directions: After compiling ingredients, its pretty simple.  Put 1/2 C. in each bag, sprinkle in some confetti and glitter, and ziplock it shut.  Paste the white cutout onto the red frame (I used paper edging scissors to make the designs sides on the red), hole punch it on the top corner, and thread the ribbon through it.  Tie the ribbon around the ziplock baggie and then cut off the ziplock part. 
Then give to children in the neighborhood for Christmas Eve! 
I remember doing this on Christmas Eve growing up, and it was always something special waiting to see if we could see Santa flying through the air.  If anyone thought they might have spotted him, they would run inside, because we knew if Santa knew we were awake, he wouldn't come to our house!
