Reindeer Food Christmas Decoration

Back at the beginning of November we went to a Christmas fair and one of the activities they had for the kids was making bags of reindeer food.  The bags had oats in and is for them to put out on Christmas Eve for Santa’s reindeer.  It was a really cute activity and made me think of doing a smaller reindeer food Christmas decoration for the tree.

Make sure you follow my Christmas board on Pinterest for more ideas.  Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make your own reindeer food Christmas decoration you will need:

  • Little bags*
  • Cotton wool
  • Stamps
  • Ink
  • Paper
  • Pen
  • Scissors
  • Tea
  • Paintbrush

*I got the ones for ours from Hobby Craft, they do a pack of 5.

We had some little gift tags that were perfect for this craft, but you can easily make your own with some paper.  To add a bit more character to them we painted ours with tea to give it that aged look.

Use your stamp on the front of the bag.  If you don’t have any stamps and ink, then pens will work just as well.

Stuff your bag with cotton wool to pad it out.  I did originally think of putting oats in it but thought that might be too tempting for the dog.  Plus, it wouldn’t be great to put them into storage with oats in.

When your little tag has dried, add the name for your reindeer.  Santa’s 9 reindeer are called: Dancer, Dasher, Vixen, Prance, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen, and Rudolph.  A fun fact for you, Donner and Blitzen’s original names are Dunder and Blixem.  Which are the original Dutch names used in Clement Clarke Moore’s “A Night Before Christmas.”

Finally attach the name tag to the bag and you are all set to put them onto your Christmas tree.

Heelys Rolls Into Spring With New Collection

Heelys, the original two-in-one wheely shoe launched in 2000, is preparing for the upcoming Easter holidays with its new spring collection. Ideal for encouraging an active, healthy lifestyle, the stylish designs will ensure kids (big and small) will roll through the holidays with ease.

The collection consists of 19 designs, including three brand new Heelys shapes: Reserve Ex, Reserve Low and Pro 20 Half Flood. The Reserve Ex has a basketball shoe style, while the Reserve Low and Pro 20 Half Flood tap into the current Y2K trend for an extra chunky sole.

Match your Heelys to your mood, with designs split across two main aesthetics – a darker colour scheme vs. a lighter, spring-inspired palette. Think camouflage print, graffiti text and paint drips contrasting with pastel colours, tie-dye, metallic laces, foil and rainbow print.

Available in the UK and Europe on the Heelys website and retailers, the collection is available in sizes C12-7 across single or two-wheeled styles. RRPs range from £49.99 to £69.99.
