A couple years ago my mom introduced our family to the "Magical Dust." As the card reads, "On Christmas Eve sprinkle magical dust on your lawn. The glitter will sparkle in the moonlight, and help Santa find your house. The smell of the oats will guide the reindeer." So every year since we have practiced this tradition, now we are passing this tradition on to my daughter's 4th grade class. I know 9 and 10 year olds might not have the belief in Santa like they once had but maybe they could pass this on to a sibling or other younger child. So this Tuesday is Kaitlyn's last day before Winter break and along with the Magical Dust we will be sending her in with the Rudolph Treat Bags/Ornament/Gift Card Holder. I hope the kids like everything...I had such a blast making all of it!
Here are BOTH my daughters Jaidyn (2) and Kaitlyn (9) helping make all 30+ bags of Magical Dust.
Here are ALL of the completed bags:
I used these items to create this project:
- Snack size Ziploc bags
- Qatmeal - 1/3 cup
- Buffalo Snow Flakes - 3 or 4 Tablespoons ** you can use regular glitter but the Buffalo Snow Flakes was more cost effective **
- Red and white cardstock
- Computer printer - to print out saying
- Misc. Christmas stamps - for the Santa and Reindeer
- Red and brown ink - for the Santa and Reindeer
Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoyed my Magical Dust!
