Eco-friendly reindeer dust

Reindeer-dustSprinkle a little reindeer dust on the lawn to help Santa and his reindeer find their way to your door.

Do your kids worry that Santa may not be able to find them on Christmas Eve? Maybe you live in a rural area or by the beach where there aren’t any street lights to light the way. The solution? Eco-friendly reindeer dust.

Store this ‘magical’ dust in an airtight container or ziplock bag, with the poem attached, until you need it. Children will need to sprinkle this on the lawn just before they head to bed on Christmas Eve. But the magic needs activating first. Get your kids to clap their hands three times, then stomp their feet on the ground four times and then say ‘Santa’ three times.

To Make:
Mix together all the ingredients and then place in a container or zip lock bag. Print or write out the poem and attach. This can be made well ahead of time.

Reindeer dust poem

Sprinkle on the lawn at night

The moon will make it sparkle bright

As the reindeer fly and roam

this magic dust will guide them to your  home
