GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV)- Last year during the holidays my son brought this great little project home from his pre-school class and I thought it was so clever I had to share!  The kids made something called “Magical Reindeer Dust”.  It’s a quick combination of things you probably have at home.  The idea is that you sprinkle it on the lawn (or snow covered lawn) to help Santa’s reindeer find your house.

Here’s how to make your own!
