As mentioned above, there are two magic reindeer food printables to choose from. Each features the same magic reindeer food poem but with a different design and orientation (portrait vs. landscape).
This free reindeer food printable has the poem that explains the activity as well as a super cute Rudolph who, in my opinion, looks like he can’t wait to chow down on some of this tasty reindeer food! 🙂
