(Inside: Sometimes, you just gotta get your cute snack on for the kids’ school parties. And this time, my cute snack of choice is this adorable Easy Candy Christmas Trees snack. So simple, but so very fun.)
Between teacher’s gifts and all my decorating at home and all the gifts for the kids and things for my husband and grabbing a gift for my mom and figuring out what to get for my dad…
Christmas can get complicated.
I mean, there’s just so much going on and things can EASILY get out of hand.
That’s why I’m using some
leftover Halloween Candy easily found candies on the holiday candy aisle to make these ridiculously cute and Easy Candy Christmas Trees for my kiddos’ holiday party this year.
No, really, I can have about 15 of these Easy Candy Christmas Trees whipped together in 15 minutes.
That’s how fast and simple these are.
And my oldest–who is ONLY 5, she helped me pull together half of them (some of them are even pictured that she worked on…) and you can’t even tell that she helped.
And so easy a preschooler can do it.
Sounds like a winner to me.
And if you don’t believe me that these Easy Candy Christmas Trees are really THAT easy, check out this slideshow video I made. Riiiiidiculously easy.
Now, get your pin on for these Easy Candy Christmas Trees, then get your
leftover Halloween candy ready. Because fun is about to happen.
