Our book for day 2 of our countdown was Reindeer’s First Christmas.
This is a cute tale of a reindeer who visits The Cat in the Hat’s Christmas Party but then has quite the adventure on his way home for Christmas. It is no literary masterpiece but it has a good rhyme and cadence to it as a read aloud and fans of the television series will enjoy. Throughout the story the reindeer is feeling very hungry because he can not find any ‘Reindeer Moss’ to munch on, so we decided to make a treat of our own: Reindeer Nuggets. This is an easy recipe we found on the Elf on a Shelf website and adapted for our needs. We substituted Honey Nut Chex for the Golden Grahams and chocolate chips for the morsels but we managed to find everything else. The best part was that I could use gluten free granola so that I can enjoys this snack with the kids.
