CHRISTMAS CRAFTS WITH POEMS
The Snowflake Poem
Put snowflake confetti in little baggies and attach a "bag tag" to the top.
On the front it says "Magical North Pole Snowflakes".
On the back it says:
"So you'll be sure to have some snow at Christmas time this year,
Santa sends these snowflakes in hope they bring good cheer!"
In a decorative cellophane or ziploc bag, place:
1 package hot chocolate mix
3 Hershey Kisses
15 miniature marshmallows wrapped in another bag
1 candy cane
Tie the top with red satin ribbon and attach the following poem:
Was told you've been real good this year
Always glad to hear it!
With freezing weather drawing near
You'll need to warm the spirit.
So here's a little Snowman Soup
Complete with stirring stick.
Add hot water, sip it slow
It's sure to do the trick!
This snowman looks frosty, but he has a warm heart
He's brimming with soup mix just for you--
This isn't a snow job ... I think you're great
Your friendship warms me through and through.

Magic Reindeer Food
Use oatmeal and edible glitter by Wilton, or colored sugar. Make sure not to use regular
glitter as it is harmful to animals! Place in a bag (can be a cellophane bag or a brown
lunch bag decorated to look like a reindeer). Tie with a ribbon and attach one
of these poems:
Sprinkle on your lawn at night,
The moon will make it sparkle bright.
Santa's reindeer fly and roam,
This will guide them to your home.
On Christmas Eve spread Magic Reindeer Food on your lawn,
To bring Santa to your house before dawn...
The smell of the oats and glitter sparkling bright
Will guide Rudolph through the night.
On Christmas eve, sprinkle glitter all over your lawn.
The glitter will shine in the moonlight
and lead Santa to your house before dawn.
The smell of the oats will guide the reindeer directly to your rooftop.
The Christmas hope in the magic reindeer food guarantees dear Santa will stop.
The reindeer will come
like melodious notes
for this magical glitter
and sweet smelling oats.
From a far distance
those reindeer will see
the sparkling glitter
and they'll find you and me!
The aroma of the oats
will make them land
and all of your friends
will think your just grand!
Then while nibbling the oats
they'll make no noise
so Santa can leave you
lots of great toys!
Just sprinkle this food
in your yard in plain sight
and be sure to do it
by the stroke of midnight!
On Christmas Eve before you sleep,
Step outside and take a peek.
Can you see them? Are they near?
You don't think so? Never fear!
While still outside do this simple deed:
Sprinkle this packet of special feed.
The glow of the stardust, the small of oats
Will draw to YOUR house those special folks!
They can't miss you now, there's nothing to fear,
For this special mix is guaranteed
To draw Santa and his famous reindeer.
