Reindeer Fun For Everyone

Updated on May 28, 2015

Happy Holidays Everyone, Let's Have Some Reindeer Fun

Let's make Reindeer Poop gifts, and bake some Reindeer cookies. We must get the crayons out for coloring pages, and how about printing our own Reindeer Gift tags? You can even find some really nice Reindeer gifts here and before you know it we will be all in the Christmas spirit

I don't know what it is about Reindeers at Christmas that I love. Maybe it has to do with waking up Christmas morning as a child very early and finding Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer on the tv while waiting for my parents to roll out of bed. I have always had to have Reindeers around me during the Christmas holidays.

I was a child of the 60's growing up in England, and we didn't have such a thing as Reindeer Poop , so I was thrilled to find it in my grown up years , now living in Canada because I think it is such a fun gag gift for adults, or a sweet gift for the kids. I will tell you how to make it and I have a printable bag topper for you to print, it is a fun and inexpensive gift.

Remember, it's not the gift, it is the thought that counts.

What is Reindeer Poop.

If you are one that never heard of it, I will tell you.

Reindeer Poop is a fun way to give some candy, usually we use chocolate covered candies, depends on the recipient as to what is inside the chocolate.

For adults you can fill a bag with gourmet coffee or chocolate covered coffee beans. Gift it with a coffee press, mug, set of spoons, or fill a gift basket and include the Reindeer Poop.

You will find here a free bag topper for your Reindeer Poop, and Reindeer printables such as gift tags, Reindeer colouring pages for the kids, and lots more Reindeer Fun.

Free Reindeer Poop Printable Bag Toppers

Prints a full sheet.

A gift from me to you, a printable sheet of six folding bag toppers all ready to print can be found HERE.

Please save the file to your computer or print directly from the page.

If you prefer labels or something to print on sticker paper, you can download my Reindeer Poop Labels which print 12 to a sheet.

Adult Reindeer Poop - Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans

WARNING: Not for children.

In place of chocolate covered candy, a great gift for adults are the gourmet chocolate covered coffee beans. This particular brand is very potent, you must like coffee or caffeine to appreciate these delights. They are packed with 600mg of caffeine per box, which is equivalent to about 6 cups of coffee.

Maybe a note on the bag topper to eat sparingly?

This recipe was found on BigOven.com and was originally from a December 2007 Ladies Home Journal magazine.

If peanut butter cookies are not suitable for your household or for taking cookies to school, use any other of your favourite cookie dough recipes, they are sure to look as cute as these and taste just as delicious.

Printable Reindeer Gift Tags

very chic

I love to search for printables that are not always found on the major printable sites. I found these cute gift tags on a blog, and the quality is beautiful.

The larger tag is really unique too. It prints only one per page and you have to cut it out and then use brads to join it together. This means the Reindeer can move too.

The other very chic tag in red and white is from the same blog, and prints a sheet of gift tags in two sizes. I love them both.

Get your own at Eat Drink Chic , design by Amy Moss

Reindeer Coloring Pages - Adults can join in too, it's very relaxing.

Print out some Reindeer to color , and enjoy some relaxing time with your children.

No children around, then do it anyway, no one is watching.

The real thing looking right back at ya!!!!

      Great lens I love Reindeer. There was a guy I used to know who brought out his Reindeer every Christmas for all the local kids to see. That was pretty magical.

      We've never made reindeer poop as gifts, but my children have made them just about every year in school. It's a bit of a tradition to enjoy reindeer poop on Christmas Eve.

      I sure enjoyed this and you got me thinking of when I was growing up, a man in my community actually raised reindeer and we would drive by the field very slowly to get a view...they were wonderful to see. I was just reading comments and raphaelo's split my gut...worthy of a feature so it doesn't get lost along the way..."but I feel I love it now.."!

      Great lens! Wow that painting your nails video is different, that's for sure. But I'm sure it draws a lot of girls in to try it out.
