Here's the poem I wrote to sent home with the reindeer food made with sugar crystals:
December 18, 2008: Today we made the reindeer food in class. I used the sugar crystals and I will say, we didn't have quite as much mess either. The colored sugar doesn't stick to the surface as much as glitter does. I had brought 5 different colors, and in teacher way I told the children then could pick a color and add it to the oats. In kid way they wanted to know if they could use all the colors--so why not. So this year our reindeer food was oats, and red, pink, blue, green, and yellow sugar crystals.
