It’s Christmas time!! And that means it’s time for an easy Christmas treat and fun activities to do with the kids. Lucky for us, these Christmas candy bars are both of those things!! A fun treat and a fun activity for the kids. You could easily make several of these and give as neighbor gifts or just have them on a plate so people who come by can have a little treat. There are so many things that you can do with these and they are sooooo easy to make (I did all the hard work :D). Just print them out, cut and wrap them around a mini candy bar!
These candy bars are super easy to make that kids would definitely have fun making them! I made up a printable with 4 different designs. You can get that here.
This is how you make them.
All you have to do is print out the printables. I printed the Santa one on red paper and all the other ones on regular white paper. The designs are meant for fun sized candy bars.
Using a paper trimmer I cut the design out. I cut them into two sizes (because some of the candy bars are smaller than the other ones). For the longer ones (like Hersheys and Kit Kat) I cut them 3 inches high and 3 1/2 inches wide. For the smaller ones (like Snickers and Milky Way) I cut them 2 1/2 inches high and 3 1/2 inches wide.
Next I just taped the paper onto the candy bar.
For the reindeer and snowman, I cut out the antlers and hat and then glued it onto the candy bar. If you wanted to, you could use the hat from the snowman on the penguin too :).
Since the Santa one is printed on red, the silver in the belt buckle just looks gray. So I decided it needed something else, so I added some glitter glue to make the buckle pop more. I think that gold or silver glitter glue would look AWESOME!
And that’s it!! Aren’t they so much fun?! I love how they all turned out. I love having fun and festive treats for my family during the holidays.
One of my favorite things about these cute candy bars is that I can use them as a decoration too. I love displaying them on my entry way table and the kids can have one every once in awhile.
Aren’t they so much fun next to my fun Christmas decorations?
One good thing is that these are so easy that when they are all gone, I can easily whip up some more with my kids and we can enjoy them all month long :).
Here is a quick video to show you the process of making them all.
