Santa Snack Cups

We made these Christmas snack cups last year and have them on our list of things to make again.  These treat cups are so easy to throw together that they are perfect for family movie night or just to make any day special.  We filled ours with popcorn, but they could hold anything from dry cereal to veggies and a bit of dip. 


Check out these Christmas Fine Motor Activities for more creative ways to work on fine motor skills and address development of skills this Christmas season. 

Santa snack cup DIY craft.  This is easy to make and perfect for family movie night!


To make Santa Snack Cups

You'll need just a few items:
Yellow construction paper
Black construction paper
Red plastic cups
tape
scissors


Cut a strip of black construction paper.  Tape it around the cup.  


Cut a square from the yellow construction paper.  Snip a smaller square in the center.  This makes the buckle of the belt.  Attach it to the cup with a loop of tape.  You're ready to fill the Santa cups with snacks for preschool parties, play dates, or family movie night.

This would be a fun (and easy) way to present a snack while doing a little Christmas craft with the kiddos.  Let us know if you make these snack cups here in the comments or on our Facebook page.  We would love to see them!

Christmas Handwriting Activities

Writing out that Christmas wish list is a difficult task that brings out tears instead of holiday excitement.  I've got a solution for your kiddo with handwriting difficulties: a packet of modified paper for all of the Christmas handwriting tasks that come up each year.  Use this handwriting pack to help kids who struggle with handwriting to participate in holiday traditions while even working on and developing their handwriting skills!

Working on handwriting with kids this Christmas season? Grab your copy of the Christmas Modified Handwriting Packet. It's got three types of adapted paper that kids can use to write letters to Santa, Thank You notes, holiday bucket lists and much more...all while working on handwriting skills in a motivating and fun way!
