30 Minutes

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.

I am sure they will be so excited to sprinkle this reindeer food outside for Santa's reindeer when they stop.

Step 1.

  • Add bird seed to a bowl.

Step 2.

  • Add sprinkles to bowl.

Step 3.

  • Add 1 packet of instant oatmeal to bowl.

Step 4.

  • Mix well.

Step 5.

  • Add to container of your choice.

Step 6.

  • I had this cute cut file I got from Design Bundles and added it to the front of the container.

Step 7.

  • Add Embellishments.

Watch the Video for the Full Tutorial.

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

I used little glass bottles from Dollar Tree for these.

I used glass jars from Michael's for these.

    The birds, squirrels, and chipmunks would more likely prefer suet for energy, than the sprinkles full of junk ingredients and sugar, I would think. We used to mold suet filled with approved wild bird seed mix when I was a kid. Then hung the suet forms, and suet filled orange cups, plus popcorn and cranberry ropes, on trees around the farmhouse. Make a separate feeding station, with peanuts, corn kernels, and suet. The squirrels, crows, and rabbits (add some greens for rabbits, romaine outer leaves are good, or kale, broccoli stems, raw sweet potatoes, etc.) The bigger messier animals tend to frighten away the songbirds, so separate stations are better. Suet balls can be hung in onion bags too. If you are feeding outdoor cats, add extra healthy fat and warm broth to their food. It will help them generate extra body heat. Stale bread can be put out, especially whole grain breads. The larger birds will peck at that ( so will chickens). Fruits are popular too. Cardinals love oranges (along with other birds ) grapes and berries, apple pieces, melon, especially watermelon, (cut up large fruits, please). Keep detritus cleaned up, no garbage, should pollute the sites. Audubon on line should have more ideas in this vein.
