Yesterday was the last day of school for the little ones. As we left school after lunch they reminded me they would now be home for 2 weeks and 2 days. We've officially started the countdown calendar for when school starts back.
Marisol's class had a holiday party where the kids wore pajamas to school, they enjoyed brunch style party food, cuddled up with blankets and pillows and watched a holiday movie. To make it just a little educational, the teacher taught the students how to make homemade butter to put on their toast and bagels. Marisol was so excited to bring her jar of homemade butter home yesterday.
Parents also came together and brought in fun brunch style dishes to share for their party.
I took a holiday brunch Chex mix. I thought this would be perfect for the kids to scoop into bowls and snack on while they watched the movie.
- 1 1/2 cartons vanilla Chex
- 3 cups mini frosted gingerbread cookies
- 3 cups mini cinnamon donuts - cut into quarters
- 3 cups yogurt covered holiday pretzels
- 3/4 cup shredded coconut
Combine all of the ingredients gently in a bowl. It combines much easier (and with less breakage of cookies and donuts) if you combine a 1/4 of all ingredients at a time.
The kids loved this and it was so simple to whip up in the morning before school.
This would make a great snack on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and for all your holiday get togethers over the next week. Or, put it in a festive bowl and place on the table for the kids to snack on while they open their gifts.
