This year has definitely been one for the books. It’s been wild and fun all at once but I wanted to make sure I made it a little special for my littles. Since they are now homeschooled and don’t get to have a holiday party at school. So I decided to upgrade our snack tray and take it even more extra than normal. My kids love when they get a variety of options to choose from and it makes my mommy job a little easier.
This one was Christmas themed and I wanted to show you the items I chose and how I decided to lay them out. It’s really a lot easier than it looks.
So our tray I tried to have it a fun mix of sweets but not necessarily ALL candy. In ours I included….
- Cake bites
- Gingerbread cookies
- Yogurt start shaped Pretzels
- Caramel popcorn
- Christmas crack
- Hershey kisses
- Reese’s trees
- Sour straws (tied into bows)
- Sour patch kids
- Christmas candy corn
I then started by placing two smaller bowls to hold the smaller candies and filled them up on one of my biggest cutting boards. I then placed the gingerbread men to circle hallways around the bowl and the Christmas crack around the other one. I then started to add the rest of the items in piles or rows around it to fill in any gaps.
I removed everything from their wrappers if they had one, besides the Hershey kisses because I like the design on the wrappers. I like the fun pop of Christmas fun it gives.
When I saw these Christmas themed candy corn I knew it would be perfect. It actually came with our popcorn. It was all mixed in and I just separated them out into their own bowl.
My kids also aren’t very big chocolate fans unless it’s white chocolate so I didn’t include much dark chocolates on our charcuterie board but feel free to get as fun as you want and vibe to what your family likes.

I hope you found some inspo and enjoy making the holidays fun for your littles. They really deserve it and are only little for so long.
Until next time, live a life you love.
