We've kept up the tradition each since then, making special homemade reindeer food, and then spreading it across the front yard on Christmas Eve before going to bed so Santa's reindeer have something to snack on while Santa's snacking away on milk & cookies in the house.
Last year, both children made sure to put the reindeer food in the "perfect" spot to ensure the reindeer wouldn't miss a single bite!
Homemade Reindeer Food
6 Tbsp rolled oats
1 Tbsp glitter
Mix oats and glitter together in a baggie or paper bag. Spread across yard. Santa's reindeer will have a field day snacking on their special treat!
