Kids Crafts Club Newsletter December 2016

Merry Christmas!

Have you ever felt like Christmas is too much? In the month of December we cram visiting, plays and programs, gift shopping, decorating, crafting, and planning a feast.

Then to top it all off we have excited children who are involved in parties, plays, and having Christmas vacation.

There is also too many good things to eat like yummy homemade fudge, candies, and cookies.

So this month I thought that I would not add to your busyness with another craft project. You only need so many cute decorations for the tree and house.

Melting Snowman Snack

Here is a cute snack that your kids can help you make. It is sugar-free. Most of the supplies you should already have in your pantry, so no extra trips to the store.

snowman snack

You will need;

  • 2 slices of bread
  • Cream cheese
  • Black olive slices or raisins
  • Cheddar cheese
  • A glass 3 1/2 inches or round container that  will use most of the bread
  • A smaller round shape 2 3/4 inches

If you cream cheese is in a block leave it out of the refrigerator so that it will soften some. Or you could use the whipped cream cheese that comes in a tub.

cut circles from your bread

Press the top of large glass in the bread to cut a circle in one of the slices of bread. With the smaller glass cut a circle from the other slice of bread.

top with cream cheese

Spread some cream cheese on both of the circles. Place the small circle on the center of the larger one.

add face

Make eyes and a mouth with the olives or raisins. Cut a triangle from the cheddar cheese for the snowman’s nose.

Enjoy your melting snowman snack with your child. You could also have carrots and a hot drink such as hot chocolate, cider, or tea.

Take time this month to enjoy your family and the Christmas holiday.
