EASY and fun holiday treats to make with your kids! {Repost}

I'm reposting this because it has been one of the most popular posts and since Christmas is upon us, here are some fun ideas to do with the kiddos.

If you’re looking for something fun to do with your children over the holiday break or need an idea for their Christmas party, hopefully this will get you started! At my monthly MOPS meeting last week, we made all sorts of fun, and very easy, treats. These are perfect for you to make with your kids, and they will love them! Thanks Lindsey for all of the great ideas!


Nutter Butter Reindeer Cookies
*You could use a Vienna Finger cookie if your child has a peanut allergy.

1. Lay out 1 nutter butter on your plate.

2. Take 1 pretzel and very gently break the bottom (round part) of the pretzel off. You will be left with the 2 loopy parts.

3. Using white cookie icing (found in the cake decorating section) or regular icing, “glue” the pretzel antlers to the top of the cookie.

4. Use the frosting to glue either 2 chocolate chips or 2 brown (or green or blue) M&M’s for the eyes.

5. Use the frosting to glue 1 red M&M for the nose.



Edible Wreaths
1. Spread ½ of a mini bagel with cream cheese (green food coloring was added to the cream cheese and was beat with the hand mixer)

2. Add raisins and craisins to the bagel to create berries.

3. Tear apart a string from a  twizzler stick (Use the kind you can peel) and do your best to create a bow and stick it to your edible wreath.



Candy Airplane
1. Use 1 package of smarties (this will be the body of your airplane)

2. Use one 5 stick package of gum. (these are your wings). Place the gum perpendicular to the smarties…. On top of the smarties, forming a “T”

3. Get 2 lifesavers (wheels) and 1 rubber band.

4. Put the rubber band through the holes of the lifesavers.

5. Pull the rubber band ends around the ends of the gum package to hold the gum into place.



Magic Reindeer Food
Mix the following in a plastic bag:
½ cup bird seed
½ cup cheerios
½ cup oatmeal
A good shake of colored sugar (at least 1 tsp)

Tie closed with red ribbon. Your children will be so excited to sprinkle this “animal-friendly” reindeer food in your yard or driveway on Christmas Eve.
