Making reindeer food is one of our favorite activities to do during our holiday party. It’s a quick and easy project for the students that they get to take home with them and share with their family.
THIS RESOURCE WORKS WELL WITH
2 large containers of oatmeal
4 bottles of colored sugar sprinkles
a box of snack size baggies
a large bowl
a scoop or spoon for the oats – a 1/2 cup measuring spoon is the perfect amount in a snack bag
free printable reindeer food bag topper (at the bottom of the post)
I pour the oatmeal into a large bowl. Each student will scoop 1/2 cup of the oats into their snack bag. Next, they get to shake some sprinkles into their baggie. We always use sprinkles and never glitter for this since they will be spreading this on the lawn. You don’t want the birds to end up eating the glitter. After they have a good about of sprinkles in their bag, have them seal it up. They can then shake the bag to help mix in the sprinkles. Help them add the free printable reindeer food bag topper by stapling it on. Now they’re done and have a fun activity to take home and share with their family on Christmas Eve.
