Are you wanting to leave a sparkly, delicious treat on the lawn for Rudolph and his buddies? Rather than using the traditional glitter (which is just made up of tiny bits of shiny plastic)... Make some salty, oaty reindeer food. It is more edible for the gang and won't put plastic into the waterways.
Here's the recipe...
Making Eco-friendly Glitter from Salt
- Preheat oven to 180 degrees C
- Mix salt with food colouring until you get the colour you like.
- Spread onto a baking tray.
- Bake for 10-15 minutes.
To make Reindeer food
Mix rock salt from above recipe with oats, put into a jar and tie a ribbon or string around it using any scraps you have. We added a reindeer picture from an old Christmas card to add a little extra 'reindeery goodness'.
