    the reindeer? What do you put out for the Reindeer?
    When I was a kid we put carrots. Sometimes raisins. And for a few years we put out dates with cream cheese and powdered sugar. Because the sugar is so messy sometimes there would be a "boot print" from Santa or a few reindeer tracks. lol!!
    This year Ava got some reindeer food with oatmeal and glitter. Just wondering if my family is the only ones that do reindeer food. lol!

    we always put out carrots and sprinkled the lawn with reindeer food

    In a small ziploc bag or baby food container, mix:

    1/4 cup oatmeal
    1/4 cup sugar

    sprinkle of red or green sugar crystals (for cake decorating)

    OPTIONAL: You can cut a circle of cloth or felt a bit larger than the lid. Place over the lid and tie a ribbon around it to decorate. We actually used Kleenex cut in a circle and tied on with wool for the top of our lid and it turned out really nice.

    (the amounts don't have to be exact)

    Reindeer food, duh! lol. My parents would mix oatmeal with sprinkles, those colored sugar crystals, or colorful flakes and sprinkle it all over our yard for them to munch on while Santa took care of things indoor

    My dad would go as far as to make boot prints with his work boots, and hand make hoof prints across the yard (Since we lived in a trailor and didn't have a chimney, he just went through the front door )

    be cool.
