This recipe is meant for Santa's furry friends. Sprinkle it on the lawn, driveway, or apartment patio to entice the reindeer and give them something to munch on while Santa delivers his goodies. Traditional recipes call for glitter, but unless you purchase the pricey edible glitter from specialty shops, it won't be safe for birds and squirrels. Substituting colored sugar will still give a sparkly appearance, without being harmful to the actual animals who will end up eating it.

Layer your Reindeer food in small glass jars such as baby food jars for a pretty appearance, or mix it all up together and scoop it into zippered plastic bags. Tie it up with pretty ribbon and add a gift tag with instructions for scattering it outside on Christmas Eve.

For each small baby food jar, you'll need:

1/4 cup dry oatmeal
1/8 cup granulated sugar
1-2 tablespoons colored sugar

Layer half of the oatmeal, followed by half of the colored sugar, the white granulated sugar, the rest of the colored sugar, and topped with the rest of the oatmeal. Alternatively, combine ingredients in a mixing bowl and scoop into zippered plastic bags.
