ELF: Here is the link to my elf post. I update it when I get new ideas.
- St. Nick's Day was 12/6, but there are a lot of stocking stuffer ideas that will work great for Christmas!
- You've Been Elf'd. Spread a little holiday cheer to your friends and neighbors. We also made and delivered cookies to our neighbors a few days before Christmas last year. They seemed to be a big hit! :)
- Life Experience Gifts. Tired of giving gifts that sit on the shelf? Try giving experience gifts!
- Gifts For Them That Help You!
- Don't Forget Safety!
- Amazing Baking Gifts

- End Of The Year Teacher Gifts. This is a list of end of the year teacher gift ideas, but many of them would work for Christmas as well.
- My Father's Day and Mother's Day posts also have some great ideas for gifts.
- Peppermint Shake (Alcohol and non-alcohol version)
- Easy Fruit Flavored Water (It tastes great, looks pretty, and is super easy!)
- Warp Corp Breach (This may be more New Year's, but it's delicious and fun!)
SNACKS & APPETIZERS:
- Edible Snowflakes (This is more of a fun snack to make with the kids.)
- Christmas Veggie Tray
- Hanky Pankies
- Soft Twist Pretzels (Goes great with Beer Cheese!)
- Popcorn Snowmen Cups (Or make candied popcorn with red and green candy melts or chocolate drizzled for dessert!)
- Snowman On A Stick
- Bear On A Sled (Could work for a kid dessert).
- Easy Christmas Themed Lunch for kids
- Checkered Potatoes (Sweet and regular in the same dish!)
- Broiled Parmesan Crusted Zucchini

- Cookie Time! (Sugar Cookie recipe)
- Christmas Swirl Cookies

- Rice Cereal Ornament Balls
- Personal Jello Fruit Cups

- Ice Cream Sandwiches with red, white, and green sprinkles
