Try the tradition of a simple Christmas after school snack.
Having a Christmas after school snack adds in a little extra fun during the season. Whether your kids go to school, homeschool, or virtual school, this can be a way to symbolize the end of a school day.
For the past few years, we have had a tradition of having hot chocolate in Christmas mugs during this season. Everyone has their own mug and it adds so much fun to everyday life.
Simple Christmas After School Snack
Creating an after school snack time can be a simple way to implement meaningful moments with your kids. Use some conversation cards and have fun together talking about the day.
This year, I surprised the kids with new mugs. The Dollar Store always has a great selection! You can add in whipped cream and candy canes if desired too.
Friends, I share this to remind you that creating meaningful moments with our kids does not have to be complicated. We can use a box of hot chocolate packets and dollar store mugs to create a magical afternoon. Anyone can do this!
- Christmas Mugs
- Hot Cocoa
- Candy Canes (optional)
- Whipped Cream (optional)
- Marshmallows (optional)
Prepare the cocoa packets in the mugs and wait to surprise your kids! If any of your kids are like one of mine, they may prefer “warm” chocolate over hot.
Take some time this week to connect with your kids. It does not have to be over hot chocolate. You choose your simple thing and do it!
