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. I’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, pretzel rods, and a Tootsie Roll baby Jesus. 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:

You helped the wise men travel far.
