Christmas Snack Idea: Reindeer Granola Bar Covers
Bring holiday cheer to lunchboxes and after-school snacks with this clever and fun Christmas Snack Idea: Reindeer Granola Bar Covers!
Hi friends! Christmas is right around the corner and I don’t know about you — but I’ve been trying to inject a little holiday cheer into just about everything we do. I realized in the busyness of the last few years (both in business and in blogging, 4th quarter is insane), I feel like I’ve really missed out on experiencing the holidays with my boys. I wrote off doing all the cheesy stuff because “they didn’t care anyways” or “I just didn’t have time”. And then the holidays were over and I realized how many opportunities I missed. Opportunities just to make them smile or brighten their day. And if you’re a mama you know, their happiness is what makes everything worth it. Worth the few minutes to make something like a simple snack a little more fun — enter these adorable Reindeer Granola Bar Covers. You only need a few simple supplies and literally minutes to whip them up:
- Granola bars
- Brown felt
- Brown pipe cleaners
- Red pom pom balls
- Small googly eyes
- Hot glue/hot glue gun
And the Steps:
1. Lay a granola bar onto a piece of brown felt and cut the felt about 2″ shorter than the granola bar is tall.
2. Lay your granola bar onto that piece of felt, wrap the sides over each other on the back side, carefully secure with hot glue and cut off any excess felt.
3. Turn your granola bar back over vertically and glue two googly eyes towards the top and a red pom pom ball about an inch or so below the eyes.
4. Cut a pipe cleaner in half, fold one piece in half, bend the sides to look like antlers and glue the center to the top backside of the felt and hold in place until the glue dries.
*these slide on and off and can be used over and over.
