A super simple way to keep the Christmas Magic Alive!

We all get super busy this time of year...
During the holidays there never seems to be enough time in the day to get everything done on our to-do list...especially for us moms, who are 99.9% in charge of keeping the holidays merry and bright for can be downright exhausting....😴

So, when there's a way to keep the magic alive AND it doesn't take up a lot of time or effort...or most importantly, and I can't stress this enough, doesn't involve an ELF...I'M IN!

The magic I'm talking about can be achieved in about 10 minutes or less and is a fun family tradition.

And the best part, it also makes a great GIFT! **BONUS**

This sparkling mixture of yummy goodness is SO EASY to make!

It's a special treat meant to be sprinkled on the lawn on Christmas Eve. 

Legend has it the magical mixture acts as a beacon to guide Santa's Reindeer to your home...
The treat even includes a special poem explaining how it works:

"Sprinkle on the lawn at night,
The moon will make it sparkle bright, 
As Santa's reindeer fly and roam,
the scent will lead them to your home."

Chances are you already have all the necessary ingredients on hand: 
1. Oatmeal
2. Sugar Sprinkles (red and green work best, but really any sparkly sprinkles will do the trick!)

Yep, that's it! Told you it was simple!
Simply mix them all together, pop them in a bag or little favor tin and you're done. (I added mini-marshmallows to mine!)

As a special touch, you can make stickers or tags to make your treat extra special...
Or even can get all the premade stickers and tags right here!

This also makes for a nice gift for friends or classmates. And if you're a teacher this is a great classroom activity.
So there you go! A fun and simple way to spend time with the kids & keep the magic of Christmas alive in 10 minutes or less...🤣

Hey, it's something...Now back to that to-do list!!!

P.S...I'd love to hear about your favorite family tradition...only if you have time ;)

  1. We do Santa’s Christmas sack. We fill with used toys the kids no longer use. They fill it and leave it out for Santa to take and fix for other kids. Great way to declutter and think of others
