With less than one week before Christmas, I wanted to share with you 27 easy Christmas treats to make with kids. With kids being home most of this year, having them help in the kitchen will be a breath of fresh air for them.

These are our favorite no bake Christmas treats to make with kids!


All these recipes are no bake recipes but some of them might require the supervision of an adult. Melting chocolate or making rice krispies by melting marshmallows and butter can get pretty hot so you have to make sure that you are with or are watching your child during those steps.

The child’s creations might not look exactly like the photos posted on here, but you should be proud and happy for them nonetheless because you are allowing them to develop their creative side.

After all, this is supposed to be a fun activity for them and for you. So make sure you enjoy every step of the way and take photos to keep those memories safe!
