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
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
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
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
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!
