Simple Christmas Tree Treat for Kids

Earlier this week we kicked off our A Very Toddler Christmas series! So far we've played a Christmas toss game, created Christmas wreaths, and made a gingerbread man collage craft

For Day 4 of our A Very Toddler Christmas series we decided to make a super simple Christmas tree snack related to our current favorite book (affiliate link)... Little Blue Truck's Christmas by Alice Shertle.

This snack was whippped together really fast during our little preschool the other day.


  • graham crackers (one whole cracker per child)
  • pretzel sticks
  • frosting
  • M&Ms (or another favorite colorful candy)


These are so easy to make! Break each graham cracker into two pieces and then cut the edges to make each square graham cracker turn into a triangle.

Next add some frosting onto the graham crackers (use green if you want to feel especially festive... not lazy like me). Then stack the triangles and one piece of a pretzel stick to look like a Christmas tree.

Finally give each child a handful of M&Ms or other colorful candies so that they can "decorate" their tree!

Talk about the colors of your ornaments as you add them to the tree and eat them! Yum!
