{Pinterest Inspired}: Reindeer Food

Reindeer Food is not an original idea and I am not sure that it can be traced to the first person that made it.  I have seen many versions on Pinterest this year and knew that I wanted to make it for Taft's friends. Some online instructions tell you to use glitter.  Please don't.  Glitter can cause health problems and death when eaten by birds and reindeer.  The sugar sparkles just enough.
Here is what I used:
Split Peas (in a bag with the dried beans).  They are the top and bottom layers in that pretty green color.
Quick Oats
Christmas Sugar (I got them in an 8 oz bottle at Michael's and picked up the ones that are clear, green, and red mixed).  They are the middle layer.
Pretzel Bags
Ribbon
Photo gift tags (I altered a photo of Taft with Santa in Picnik.  I then printed it on a 4x6 collage at Wal*Mart for 9 cents a sheet.)
Reindeer Food instruction tag (I used these free printable)

I only filled the Pretzel Bags about half full and cut off the extra.  I decided to layer the different foods because I love the way it looks.  You can mix everything together and package it that way to be an even faster gift. 

Taft was very excited about taking it in to his friends!
