Reindeer dust! Or ... Mummy 1, Sugar 0

It's that time of the year.

When every second Christmas card and every well meaning shop assistant has a candy cane ready to rot the teeth of your child (and let's face it - the kids don't like them much anyway!)

The solution to all our candy cane woes is this. Magic Reindeer dust!

As the candy canes arrive we open them and crush them into little pieces. Add a sprinke of red and green glitter, and store in an airtight container.

Now we have reindeer dust ready to sprinkle on the lawn on Christmas Eve for the reindeer! Full of energy and magic to help them fly around the world!

And Miss E thinks it is SO magical! She couldn't wait to make it and there was no talk AT ALL of eating any of those canes! WIN!


  1. both of my superheroes LOVE the idea! spidey even said "can we sprinkle some on me? i want to fly!"

  2. What a great idea!!!

    I tend to take them and when I see someone having a tough day, store clerk, etc, I give them one and tell them I hope their day gets better. It usually brings a smile.

  3. what a devious mother. Maybe she learnt well from her mother.
