Holiday School Snacks and Ornaments

For the last week of school before the Christmas holidays, the Kindergarten teachers plan a week of theme days. We dress up, make ornaments, eat snacks, read stories, make crafts, and watch movies and we set each theme from a children’s book or movie. We have a santa day, rudolph, Grinch, Charlie Brown, and Polar Express. Our snacks are easy-to-make and so much fun.

I have been helping students make these for many years. Every year that I think about skipping this one, I get comments from parents of previous students about putting this on on the tree and thinking about how small their handprints were that year. This year, I have 4..FOUR students that are younger siblings of previous students so I knew I had to do this one for them, as well.

This Santa snack is made from graham crackers, buttercream frosting, red piping icing (squeeze tube), M&Ms and marshmallows.

The Rudolph snack is very similar. I used some of the butter cream and added cinnamon to it for the brown face. Pretzel antlers. Red piping icing for nose. M&Ms for eyes.
