I love the holidays! And I really love spreading holiday cheer. That’s why I like to add some festivity to my kids’ lunch boxes with these holiday snacks that are fast and easy to put together.

With just a few minutes and some basic craft supplies, you can turn ordinary lunch box items into festive holiday treats. They’ll brighten your child’s day, and everyone else sitting near your child at lunch!

Plus, devoting a few extra minutes to making your child’s lunch or snack special is a simple way to show your kids you care.

Fun and Easy Holiday Snacks

For these holiday snacks, I stuck with common lunch box items. The great thing about that is that not only will you probably have at least one of them on hand already, they’re easily converted to an easy classroom holiday party treat.

Our elementary school doesn’t allow us to bring in homemade treats so this is how to add a little fun and festivity to those store-bought goodies.

  2. Cute ideas! I love putting surprises in the kids lunch boxes. Maybe if I “dress up” my daughter’s juice box, she’ll actually drink it, LOL! Visiting from Merry Monday.
