Kids Holiday Snack Ideas


Holidays are exciting times for kids, full of many things to see, do and taste. If you plan to host a holiday party or event for kids, you must have snacks. Tasty holiday snacks make special days even more wonderful. During the busy holiday season, be prepared by making snacks in advance and refrigerating them. Snacks will keep hungry tummies from rumbling until the next meal.

Holiday Finger Foods

  • Make the holidays bright with delicious finger foods. Set out a tray of sandwich kabobs. Place chunks of bread, grape tomatoes, lettuce, cheese and ham on a bamboo skewer in sandwich order, and arrange the skewers on a holiday-appropriate tray. For Christmas, you could use a green or red ceramic tray. For Halloween, line a tray with orange foil, and cover it with mini-pumpernickel-and-cream-cheese sandwiches.

    Other festive finger foods include "Pickle Puffs," which are incredibly easy to make. Lay a piece of deli ham on a cutting board, and slice it into 2-inch-wide strips. Smear some cream cheese on each strip, and add a gherkin. Roll the strip up, and you have a Pickle Puff. Serve kids red and green bell-pepper slices for dipping in their favorite sauces at Christmas. At Easter, give kids deviled eggs for snacks.

Holiday Sweets

  • For a sweet treat for fall holidays, make a "Cake in a Cup." Spray the insides of an oven-proof mug with cooking spray, then fill the mug about two-thirds full with cake batter. Bake for about 15 minutes at the temperature recommended on the cake box. Let the cake cool, and top it with marshmallow creme and chocolate syrup. Make the cake in appropriate seasonal colors by adding a few drops of food coloring to white cake batter. You can make red cakes for Christmas, blue cakes for Easter and orange cakes for Halloween.

Holiday Beverages

  • Serve kids drinks in goofy glasses with crazy shaped straws. Holiday drink ideas include pink punch for Valentine's Day. Mix fruit punch with lemon-lime soda, and pour over ice. Peppermint mocha hot chocolate during winter holidays taste and smell refreshing. Just add a peppermint stick to your hot chocolate. During summer holidays, add fruit-flavored ice cubes to such drinks as lemonade or iced tea.
