Treats for Santa

As a little girl I used to get very excited about leaving out a snack and a drink for Santa and the Reindeer. We used to leave a fruit mince pie, milk, and a carrot for Rudolph.

Now that my son is old enough I have decided this year to start a family tradition of making something special and handmade with my son to teach him to be thankful and thoughtful by giving Santa something in return for delivering gifts to us.

Here are some sweet ideas I have spotted for preparing a treat for Santa and the Reindeers ...

1. These Cookie sacks - an adorable little muslin bag with an iron on transfer filled with mini cookies, would make a perfect midnight Snack !

2. Chocolate and Caramel Dipped Marshmallows would be something different for Santa to munch on, and simple and fun for the kids to make

3. A Personalised Santa Plate for the treats to go on, the kids can write their own message on this one.

4. Make special Reindeer food by combining oats and coloured sugar crystals / sprinkles, the kids can sprinkle a trail on the grass so Rudolph and friends can find their way to your house.

What do you leave out for Santa and his reindeer on Christmas Eve ?
