If you are trying to get your kids into the Christmas spirit, start with their food! Here are a ton of Santa themed snacks to make for kids!
I’m so excited for my kids’ Christmas this year. They are 1 and 3 years old and for the first time I feel like they are both cognizant and REALLY EXCITED for Christmas.
One thing that I am doing to foster that sense of excitement is to turn December into a whole month of fun holiday activities.
An easy way to do that is my festiv-izing their snacks! There are tons of Christmas snacks to make the season feel a little more special.
Healthy Christmas Treat ideas
Looking for healthy Christmas snack ideas for kids? Instead of basing snacks around cookies and candies, try using:
- Babybel cheese (wrap to look like santa)
- Fruit (kebabs or cups)
- Pancakes (fun shapes with cookie cutters)
- Fruit cups (decorate to look like santa, reindeer, snowman, etc)
- Cheese and crackers (cookie cutter cheese into Christmas shapes)
