40 Cute Christmas Recipes for Kids
I have so many childhood memories that revolve around food and family. We had a full line-up of family events during Christmas week: cookie-making day, Pizza and Chinese food day, Christmas Eve dinner and Grandma’s, and Christmas dinner at Granny’s. As you can see, food played a big role in our holidays!
Now that I have kids of my own, I try to make the holiday season just as magical for them as it was for me.
We’ve started our own cookie making tradition with my mom and sister. We have tamales on Christmas Eve (a tradition in my husband’s family), and Christmas dinner with the whole family.
We pretty much spend the entire month cooking and enjoying holiday treats together!
This collection of Christmas recipes for kids includes some of our family favorites, as well as contributions from some of our blogger friends.
These Christmas recipes are so much fun for kids…and the young-at-heart!
For easier searching, we’ve grouped the Christmas recipes for kids into sections based on the type of treat, from cookies to cupcakes to candy. Enjoy!
