Today we had our annual “North Pole Breakfast” when our elf, Candycane, arrived. The kids were so excited he came back again. It’s so simple to do and really doesn’t take much time or planning.
Let’s take a look back at the past 3 years of this tradition shall we?
2014…where it all began 🙂
2015 (I was slacking on the decorations a bit)
All I used were decorations from the dollar store. The best part is you can reuse them every year and the kids are none the wiser. Then I ran over to Acme to grab what I needed for the actual breakfast.
Santa Hats- slice of banana, strawberry, topped with a mini marshmallow (held together with a toothpick)
Candy Canes- banana and strawberry slices
Snowballs- powdered donuts
North Poles- stacked powdered donuts held together with a candy cane
Christmas Tree- grapes, apples, strawberries, and pretzels
Stockings- jello cut with a cookie cutter and topped with mini marshmallows
Snowman- waffles and icing (or could use whipped cream) and clementines stacked together
Chloe’s allergic to eggs and dairy, so we keep the menu simple with mostly fruit options. Makes grocery shopping very easy 😉
Like I said this really doesn’t take a whole lot of planning, but the kids LOVE it!! Now that the breakfast is over and done with, I think Candycane may have some tricks up his sleeve this month!
