magical reindeer dust

so i've heard of pixie dust, but until yesterday afternoon, i had no idea what magical reindeer dust was. but now, i know we'll be making lots & lots of reindeer dust in the near future...

magical reindeer dusts consists of:
1 cup sugar
1 cup instant oatmeal
1 cup glitter (or, if you live in an area with lots of "non-magical" creatures, you might want to substitute sprinkles for the glitter)

mix everything together & package with the following poem/ instructions:

the legend of magical reindeer dust
it has once been said,
that right before you go to bed.
you should sprinkle magic reindeer food,
to quickly bring Santa and his brood.
for many years the legend has been told,
to boys and girls, both young and old,
sprinkle the food throughout your yard,
then finding your house won’t be so hard!
the reindeer can smell the food for 100 miles,
just do not leave it in big piles!
after you do this you must go to sleep very fast,
so Santa and his reindeer will not pass!

That's so cute! I've seen it in stores and stuff before, but, how simple to make. And how fun. I'll have to make this for my sister this year.
