Christmas Reindeer Activities

20 Dec 2016

Every Christmas Eve, little ones from all over the world are baking up some yummy treats for Santa. But how about his trusty reindeer? My little ones always look forward to making Santa’s reindeer a treat for their long journey flying around the world. A few days before Christmas Eve, we make it an ‘All about Reindeers’ night and do some activities including making some homemade Reindeer, leading up to the big day! Here are a few ideas of what you can do to make your own ‘All about Reindeers’ night!

Watch a movie about Reindeers! These are a few our favorites!

  1. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
  2. Olive the Other Reindeer
  3. Prancer

Read some of these books about Reindeers!

  1. How the Reindeer got their antlers by Geraldine McCaughrean
  2. The Wild Christmas Reindeer by Jan Brett
  3. The Great Reindeer Rebellion by Lisa Trumbauer

Make Reindeer Food! Here’s what you need!

  1. Oats
  2. Carrots
  3. Peanuts (still in shell)
  4. Sugar Cookie Sprinkles

Simply mix in a bowl and read the cute poem below! If not using right away, put in plastic bag and store in the refrigerator! These also make cute class party gifts!

Sprinkle this reindeer food outside tonight
The moonlight will make it sparkle bright
As the reindeer fly and roam
This will guide them to your home
