C brought this home from pre-school today and I thought it was a genius idea! It's Christmas card and candy cane season at school which can be tough for kids who have allergies and food sensitivities and for mums and dads who try to control how much refined sugar makes its way into the kid's diets at this time of year. This little container filled with reindeer food (i.e. birdseed) delighted C and is tucked safely under the Christmas tree to be spread across the yard on Christmas eve. We've already handed out several kilos worth of sugar with the cards this year but hopefully I'll remember this lovely little idea for Christmas 2011.
