1. Snack to Share Your preschoolers will love this snack that teaches how fun it can be to share. Follow the link for instructions. Kids will stir up a batch of Christmas snacks and fill bags to enjoy and share with others. After praying for someone, they will deliver the ribbon-wrapped bag of goodies to them.

2. Nativity Snack We’ve heard of gingerbread houses and gingerbread Nativity scenes, but this snack puts a whole new twist on that idea. Kids try to build a Nativity scene with graham crackers, marshmallows, shredded coconut, and more. They’ll find it next to impossible, until you provide them frosting for glue. Then you can guide your kids into discovering that just as they need the frosting for their snack, we all need Jesus to hold our lives together.

3. Gingersnap Stars Here is a snack celebrating Jesus’ birth that you can make in a snap. These spicy stars made with peanut butter and gingersnap cookies are a great treat that can go along with Matthew 2:10-11. Bonus: Younger kids will love singing this simple song set to the tune of “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” while enjoying the treat:

Twinkle, twinkle, little star.
What a super sign you are.
Up above the world so high,
Announcing Jesus in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star.
You helped the wise men travel far.
