Reindeer dust

I went to make some granola this morning but couldn’t source the oats. Turns out my mum (a teacher) had taken them to school to make reindeer dust! As this Christmas craft is new to me I thought I’d share it in case it’s new to some of you parents out there too :)

It’s stupidly simple, just mix oats with glitter… but it’s the idea behind it that’s magical. For a long time children have been leaving a sweet treat and a tipple for Santa, which is all very well when he’s inside your house delivering presents. But what if he has trouble finding your house? Santa’s a busy man so the easier you make it from him to locate you, the better…

By making some reindeer dust to sprinkle on your garden you can help guide the reindeers there. And when I say ‘you’ I of course really mean your children…

This could easily be another one of those family traditions that mean so much at Christmas :)
