Reindeer Poop Recipe
It's so simple, even a five-year-old can do it! (And that's about the age that really enjoys it!)
Ok, parents, so it's Christmas time again and you need a quick, fun and very easy craft for the kiddies. Let's make reindeer poop! I know, I know - it sounds disgusting, and no adult in their self-respecting mind would stoop to something so childish, but, hey, Christmas IS for kids, right? So here's your recipe:
1 Package of malted milk balls, Milk Duds, or other chocolate candy
1 plastic baggie
1 reindeer poop poem (see below)
Take the package of candy and pour into the bag. Seal the bag. Print the poem and attach it to the bag. (See? Didn't I tell you this would be easy?)
If you really want to make it more difficult, you can use this reindeer poop recipe to bake some treats rather than using packaged candy.
Without the poem, all you've got is a bag of chocolate candy. Add the poem and voila! instant reindeer poop! (Remember when you were a kid and all it took was a little imagination to turn the most mundane objects into something fantastical?) So here's the magic printable poem that will turn your candy into something unmentionable and put a smile on your child's face. You can get your own free printable bag topper at Letters to Kids from Santa.com. The bag topper has a picture of reindeer on one side and this poem on the other:
I woke with such a fright when I heard Santa call...
"Now dash away, dash away, dash away all!"
I ran to the lawn and in the snowy white drifts,
those nasty reindeer had left "little gifts."
I got an old shovel and started to scoop
neat little piles of reindeer poop!
But to throw them away seemed such a waste,
so I saved them, thinking-you might like a taste!
As I finished my task, which took quite awhile,
Old Santa passed by and he sheepishly smiled.
And I heard him exclaim as he sped off in the sky...
"Well they're not potty trained, but at least they can fly!"

and found you've been naughty, and not very nice.
