When it's your turn to be snack mom, make sure you put a holiday twist on the staples. Things like fruit cups, string cheese, and juice cups can be dressed up to look like Santa or a snowman. We love the idea of adding a Santa Claus belt to a fruit cup filled with strawberries, red apples, and red grapes. The kids will be in a hurry to get their hands one this healthy treat!

2. Create Your Own Holiday Gifts

All Things With Purpose

As a mom, you are often tasked with coming up with fun activities to keep the kiddos busy and learning! A great idea is to help them create a homemade gift for the holidays. A blank canvas, some paint, and a little artistic vision will make this project a breeze! Try making a Christmas tree out of hand prints! This cute and thoughtful gift is sure to be a winner both at home and in the classroom.

3. Make an Advent Calendar Out of a Muffin Tin

The countdown to Christmas is on with this muffin tin advent calendar. Fill each cup with a little surprise for the days leading up to Christmas. A little crafting and creativity will go a long way. Get more details from us at Better Homes & Gardens.

4. Turn the Classroom Into "The Polar Express"

Decorate the classroom tables in style! Use giant butcher block to wrap the desks like a present. These will look beautiful and keep the area clean during holiday festivities. We can't help but be reminded of one of our favorite Christmas books, "The Polar Express," when we see these tables from Home Room Mom.

Turn the holidays into a game by dressing up your students as snowmen. This is a fun take on the Halloween mummy wrapping game. Use crepe paper or toilet paper to wrap one of the kids up like a snowman. Divide the class in two and let them race to build a snowman the fastest! The kids will love showing off their creativity and competitive spirit!
