I love to start new traditions at my household that become lifelong ones. Last year, one of the awesome moms created a reindeer-food-making station at Kate's preschool Christmas party. The kids got to dip their scoop into each container and fill their plastic bag with goodies for Santa's reindeer.
Then, on Christmas Eve night, they were supposed to sprinkle the bag of goodies on their front lawn so Santa would know to stop at their house.
It was the most memorable experience for my daughter. Take a look at her sprinkling her food on the lawn on Christmas Eve night...
Can you tell she enjoyed herself?!?!
So, this momma decided we were going to continue this exciting activity this year. I forgot the ingredients and the meanings of each one, so I had to recreate them. I made sure to include magical dust, sparkles, and food for Santa's awesome reindeer.

Here is a little glimpse at our magical-reindeer-food-making experience...
Excuse the not-so-perfect stapling that was done to the top of the bag. My assistant did a lot of the work. :)
I can't wait to sprinkle this on our front lawn and capture every moment on Christmas Eve night.
