Because strawberry Santas, Christmas tree brownies and cheese reindeer recipes are essential for any kids' Christmas party or merry play date!
The Christmas silly season is well and truly upon us, and we’re loving getting our craft on with the kids and decorating our Christmas tree. Sure, you can outsource cooking on the big day by booking a Christmas feast, but what do the kids snack on at a home Christmas party (eek!)? Don’t fret, we’ve hand-selected several Christmas party recipe ideas that’ll win you Parent Of The Year…
15 easy recipes for a kids Christmas party
1. Sweetie Bauble decoration
Imagine the littlies grabbing their Christmas snacks from the yuletide tree. Yes, please! Here’s a fun-to-put-together snack that the fam and the kiddos will love to make, and it does not require any cooking. Yay! Sweetie bauble decoration by Good to Know requires just three ingredients including rice crispies, white chocolate and a bag of jelly tots. To hang the decorations from the tree, you will also require ribbon or string of your choice.
2. Christmas cookies
These Christmas goodies never run out of style and for many of us, the yuletide cookie-churning ceremony takes us back to our childhood. So bring out those cookie cutters, and if you don’t have any at hand, fret not! Cut your own shapes with a butter knife. Bigger Bolder Baking has not one but three easy types of Christmas cookies to try with your little elves with just one cookie dough recipe and they are delish!
3. Fun Snowman snack cups
These Fun Snowman snack cups by Eats Amazing are so easy-peasy to put together that you’ll probably be able to churn out a bunch in a flash. All you need the hob for is to pop the corn kernels. Once cooled, the kiddos can jump in to put their snowman snack cups together. So fun and so easy!
