Christmas Treats Roundup

Fun and Easy Christmas Treat Ideas Roundup 

Thanksgiving is over and I took the liberty of sitting down my almost-two-year-old this morning to tell him all about Christmas! I told him that how on Christmas we celebrate baby Jesus’ birthday. And I of course told him all about Santa, his reindeer and how he bring presents to good little boys who mind their moms! He was, obviously, pretty excited about the presents part.  He already has a few Christmas songs in his repertoire–I think “Rudolph” is his favorite!  It’s soo much fun watching him discover all of the joys of Christmas and really start to understand it this year!  

I love involving him in the process of anything I’m making in the kitchen and I can’t wait for him to help me make some fun Christmas treats! These Christmas Cornflake Wreaths (first on the list below) are one family tradition treat we will definitely be making together!  But check out all of the adorable ideas below–and get excited for Christmas in less than one month!
