Fun, original and tasty appetizer and appetizer recipes for kids at Christmas.

When we think that we are going to prepare on Christmas Eve, Christmas or New Years we forget the most important ones on these dates, the ones who enjoy them the most, the children.

We think of a big meal , but sometimes with flavors and textures that the little ones at home have not yet learned to appreciate.

Children like everyday things, routine is their ally, because they are learning. Sometimes getting off on a tangent with something very different will be like the death of a chronicle announced … I tell you, he is not going to eat it.

Decorating the Christmas tree, setting up the Nativity scene with them, decorating the house with lights, dancing and singing Christmas carols … but also cooking with them, a great activity to play with as a family while learning.

So this year I have thought of a selection of homemade Christmas snacks , rich and easy to make for them too. In those who are going to collaborate as a workshop or workshop, in which they are entertained, learn and above all, then eat them.

The Christmas Eve dinner or Christmas lunch is a great time for children to put their aprons and help their parents in the kitchen. They can participate in the preparation of the Christmas menu, especially if their tasks are quick and easy to prepare.

Most are recipes that can be made in advance, and you just have to give a touch of frying or baking, perfect for you to know how to appreciate the work behind a great meal for everyone, young and old, to enjoy. Good idea? Do you dare to prepare them with your children?

Christmas tree with cucumber, carrot or tomato

This snack is super easy, like a warm up. You only need a few slices of your favorite bread, a metal or silicone mold with Christmas motifs (the same one we use for Christmas cookies), your children’s favorite vegetables and a little mayonnaise.

  1. We cut the base of the bread with the mold of the cookies.
  2. Spread with a little mayonnaise. We cut very thin slices of zucchini, cherry tomatoes or cucumber and place them on top. Ready our first appetizer.

Rice Snowmen

  1. The next starter is almost as easy as the last one. You only need to have previously cooked and cooled white rice .
  2. Let’s play with the rice as if it were modeling clay. We make 4 big balls and 4 small balls. We cook a carrot in the microwave and cut into small squares for the buttons and the nose of the snowman.
  3. We do the same with the tip of 4 peppers, better that they be colored, and we will have the caps ready. For the eyes we will use cloves and for the mouth, pieces of olives.
  4. It only remains to mount the snow trees made with rice. You will see how they eat them without problems.
