Toddler Christmas snacks

Toddler Christmas Snacks
Time to jazz up those day to day toddler snacks with some festive fun!  Sure, it takes some time and doesn't look absolutely perfect but your toddler will love it (and you) for doing it! 

May I present the fruit candycane:
 Clearly she loved it!   
(I wish I could take credit for this super cute fruit snack but I saw it in Taste of Home.)
 Don't forget about milkies in a fun cup!
And if you need to kill time before her scrambled eggs are ready, try this fine motor skill activity.  Just buy a sugar jar from the dollar store and have your child put toothpicks in the holes.  Bam!  Whiney-ness averted.
She loves this activity!
The second snack I saw floating around the internet and been wanting to try:
Grinch Kabobs!
So easy.  You just need green grapes, bananas, strawberries, marshmallows, and toothpicks.  I cut the bottoms off the grapes so they could stand up but if you make a whole bunch and lay them down, you don't have to do that.
 Solis is a really good eater but I've never seen her eat fruit so fast.  Anytime you jazz up your child's food, they will eat it up!  Tis the season!
