Looking for EASY and kid-friendly Christmas snack ideas?

If you’ll be a hosting a holiday party, organizing classroom parties, or simply want to make a special holiday-themed school lunch for your little ones, check out these oh so easy and creative snack/treat ideas for the kiddos!

Many schools don’t allow homemade goodies, so adding some fun details and embellishments to packaged snacks is a festive option! Make sure to check the Dollar Tree for many of these simple craft supplies or adapt these ideas to things you may already have on hand.

Here’s how to easily transform ordinary packaged snacks into creative holiday treats your kids will LOVE! 😍 🎄
1.) Snowmen String Cheese

Supplies Needed: 

Directions: Cut a shape in the form of a hat with black paper and glue it to top of cheese stick. Add face details with Sharpie markers. Tie a piece of ribbon as a “scarf”, and add a few dots of marker as “buttons”.


2.) Gingerbread Decorated Oatmeal Creme Pies

Supplies Needed:

Directions: Draw “frosting” details around the outside packaging of cookie using puffy paint. Glue eye and cheek details and add a smile using puffy paint. Shape a piece of pipe cleaner into a small ribbon and glue to top of cookie. Let dry.


3.) Santa Belt Fruit Cups

Supplies Needed: 

Directions: Cut 1/2 inch wide strips of black paper to fit individual cups. Glue paper across middle of each cup. Draw a square “buckle” detail using puffy paint. Let dry.


4.) Reindeer Pudding Cups

Supplies Needed: 

Directions: Tape a pipe cleaner across top of cup, and form each end into a zigzag shape. Glue red nose to the bottom of cup, and eyes to the top of the side.


Oh my goodness these snacks were FUN and EASY to put together!

My kids are excited to share some with their friends. A platter of these would make some creative party favors at a holiday party. SO CUTE!

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
