I used to use food colouring on raw sugar for reindeer food.
Glitter has a life time ban in this house and paint too till she went to school and other peoples houses where they were breaking the law using paints. Had told her they could only be used at daycare

My DD, who is 18, never did - so perhaps you have an influencer there?
DD1, who is 17, was 2 when we started doing "glitter laced reindeer oats". So yeah, 10 years ago people were out there, 'feeding the reindeer'.
That elf didn't eventuate until mine were too old for it though.
Probably just as well ...
Hmm - did the glitter lure the evil elves into close proximity to civilisation and open the door to them getting into (certain people's) homes?

Reindeer don't eat glitter. What is wrong with everyone? Give them a carrot!
People are confusing them with unicorns it seems.

Because flying reindeers that circumnavigate the globe in a 24 hour period are not "fantastic" creatures at all!

It's always a carrot here. Luckily our Beagle loves carrots and has far more impressive bite marks than I could ever achieve.
Day care did send home a glitter/oat food bag one year. I threw it away.

Thank you for reminding me there was a packet of ‘reindeer food’ that needed to be surreptitiously tossed.

The one and only year we got "reindeer food" from daycare was the year we lived in a flat.
Sprinkle on what garden, exactly?
It's such a weird concept. Feed animals bits of sparkly plastic by sprinkling it on your garden that you may or may not have?
