Festive Preschool Snacks

Wednesday, December 14, 2011

There is a reason why I don't do crafty cooking posts very often. My cooking tends to be straightforward. Good, I admit, but no nonsense. I don't cut sandwiches into fun shapes or put raisin eyes on, well, anything.

But with the Christmas season and preschool parties upon us, I decided to bust out of my boring box. Big Guy's teacher asked me to bring the main course for his class Christmas party, and, "Please, for the love of all things holy, bring something other than chicken nuggets."


I searched the internet for inspiration and found this turkey roll up Christmas tree somewhere in the Family Fun Magazine archives.

Sorry for the blurry picture, but you get the basic idea. The recipe called for a cranberry spread on the roll ups, but I thought the preschoolers might balk at that (some of them balked at the plain turkey, cheese and mayo!) so I kept it basic. Still, I thought it turned out pretty cute and the moms definitely liked it.


I found a similar idea for a party we had over the weekend. It doesn't get any cuter or easier than this.

So there you have it - Christmas tree shapes work for me!

  2. These look great!  I am not a "crafty cooker" either so I always have to get cute things from the store!  You did great!
