Now that Jaxson is in Kindergarten I am constantly on the hunt for pre-packaged snacks for his classmates! Oh, how I wish I could share all the delicious homemade treats we make! It’s a little difficult to find cute and crafty pre-packaged items.

They are having their Christmas party right before their Christmas break this Friday, so I wanted to get a gift for all of his friends. I thought pencils or candy canes, more candy and maybe hot chocolate. There are a variety of options but nothing was quite filling the vision I had.

I walked around Walmart with Jaxson, looking at all the different treat options, and he finally decided on donuts. I could live with donuts. I LOVE donuts! Walmart had a 12-pack of variety donuts for $3!!

We decided that we would make “snowmen” out of the white powdered ones and “reindeer” out of the chocolate covered ones. I bought some brown pipe cleaner for the antlers, wiggle eyes, and red pom poms for the reindeer noses.

We drove home and got to work!
