Are you looking for a simple and environmentally friendly reindeer food recipe for this Christmas? Well, I have it for you and all it takes is 3 ingredients. I will also show you how I create magical reindeer food containers for my nieces and nephews for this Christmas Eve.

Step 7.

  • Add Embellishments.

***This is a eco-friendly magical reindeer mix which is safe for birds, squirrels, chipmunks, etc.

    Yes, I will try this. I cut rectangles from the sides of prewashed quart orange juice containers, put a few drainage holes in the bottom, put a stick through holes made through the top, tie a string to each end of the stick,or then cover the bottom with seed before hanging. Birds love it!

    Nice recipe for reindeer food. I like the addition of birdseed. It adds color and nutrition for our feathered friends.
