Santa’s Reindeer Snack

This time of year, everyone wants to make fun memories and enjoy special moments but there’s so much to do. That’s why I like this Santa’s Reindeer Snack. It’s a fun but not completely sugar-laden snack for little ones. Plus it’s super quick to make at the last minute with ingredients you probably already have on hand. This idea is from the Experience Early Learning Preschool Curriculum.

A Snack from Santa’s Workshop

Santa’s Workshop is a printable Celebration Kit from Experience Preschool Curriculum. It’s a booklet full of ideas to celebrate Christmas.

As you can see, some fun ideas are in here to supplement your holiday activities. I enjoyed making the Santa’s Reindeer Snack for the kids one day for morning snack. You can certainly have the kids make their own.

Maybe I should have thought to have the kids assemble their own, but I was thinking of surprising them with this cute snack instead.

They were very pleased! It does look like a reindeer! We used a red M & M for the nose to make it Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer.

I tried a couple different versions, using a half of a cracker or a whole crackers. Both turned out cute!
