This reindeer food printable is a fun Christmas tradition during the holiday season. Our printable bag toppers come with a cute reindeer food poem you can print out to make your own magic food for Santa’s reindeer on Christmas Eve.
We just love the magic of the holiday season and we’re always looking for holiday activities to add to our list of special holiday traditions.
My favorite thing about Christmas is the magic in small children’s eyes as they patiently wait for Santa.
The Christmas season is such a special time of year and we always try to make the most of it.
From hosting Christmas scavenger hunts, writing a letter to Santa and creating a Christmas bucket list to playing a couple rounds of bingo and making Christmas Popcorn, we’ll never turn down a fun activity that boost Christmas spirit.
Last year, we added magic bags of reindeer food to our list of fun traditions after we made our own reindeer food printable.
Our daughter was over the moon excited to help me transform a handful of simple ingredients into an easy reindeer food recipe she put out for Santa’s reindeer on Christmas eve.
Magic reindeer food bags are a fun Christmas eve tradition that we hope you’ll plan to try.
To make this fun idea even more festive we created a free printable reindeer food poem tag that you can print and use.
Free Reindeer Food Printable
Our free printable reindeer food tags are an adorable addition to a goody bag filled with magic reindeer food or magic reindeer dust.
Once you’ve made this easy magic reindeer food recipe you recite the cute poem with your child and sprinkle the magic reindeer dust on your front lawn Christmas eve night.
These free reindeer food printables are a fun Christmas activity for kids because they really help build holiday spirit.
