    This fun reindeer food is one of our favorite Christmas traditions to enjoy together as a family. The kids get so excited on Christmas morning when they find that the reindeer have eaten some of their food. Some other fun Christmas traditions of ours are elf on the shelf, decorating Christmas cookies, writing letters to Santa and making an advent calendar.

    Christmas with little kids is the absolute BEST ever! I love this time of year and the magic that is all around. Making this magic reindeer food is a fun activity to do with the kids (or grand kids) on the days leading up to Christmas Eve.

    My kids love making homemade sugar cookies decorated with sugar cookie icing for Santa on Christmas Eve night and never want to forget about the reindeer. They are Santa’s big helpers.

    They love putting out some carrots on the lawn, along with this reindeer food recipe. They always stay up late waiting to see if they can hear the reindeer land on the roof. They’re always so excited to find that the reindeer have eaten some of their carrots and food in the morning!
