Guide Rudolph and his team on Christmas Eve with magical reindeer food. Use the free printable I’ve created to make Magical Reindeer Food Ornaments for a simple and fun Christmas tradition.
My favorite thing about Christmas is celebrating the traditions that we’ve started together as a family. These traditions include watching a Christmas movie on Thanksgiving, baking Christmas cookies, driving around looking at Christmas lights, and so much more. One of my favorite Christmas traditions since having children is getting ready for Santa on Christmas Eve. This includes setting cookies and milk out for Santa and leaving carrots for Santa’s reindeer. We also sprinkle Magic Reindeer Food outside for Santa.
Since having kids, I’ve discovered that the best thing about Christmas is the magic of believing and that’s why I’m so excited about today’s fun little craft project. This Magic Reindeer Food Ornament is so easy to make and I was able to buy all the supplies at my local Dollar Tree. How awesome is that?

How to make Magic Reindeer Food
Add candy canes to small bag and crush with the bottom of a glass or rolling pin. In a large bowl, mix oats, crushed candy canes, and sprinkles. Mix everything together with a spoon.
Now, for the best part! Remove the metal top of the ornament. Use a funnel to pour magic reindeer food into the plastic ornament. Add top back onto the ornament and tie the printable tag to the ornament using ribbon.
That’s it. How easy was that? You just can’t beat an easy Christmas craft. Get the kiddos involved for a fun new family tradition.
And, now your ornament is ready to hang on your Christmas tree until it’s time to sprinkle the magic reindeer food outside on Christmas Eve.
