Family Holiday Traditions
The holidays are a time for family traditions, and one of my favorite things to do each year is creating yummy holiday treats with my junior chef. He inspires me to try new things, and we have so much fun planning, shopping, and cooking together. We especially like to create sweet treats to share with our friends and family.
When we needed a snack to share with our literature group, we decided to whip up some Snowflake Treat Bars with my son’s favorite cereal, Honeycomb. These are really delicious, and they make a generous amount for sharing.
We printed off a coupon and headed to Target to get a box of Honeycomb cereal (and had some fun taking pictures of our adventure). That big yellow box just makes him smile! Even though we shopped at Target, these coupons are good anywhere, so be sure to print yours out before doing your grocery shopping.
While we were waiting in line to check out, my son pulled up the trailer for the new movie SING© on his phone, and we watched it and started laughing out loud. It looks like it’s going to be a fun movie, and we are planning to go see it when it opens in a couple weeks (In theaters December 21st). Have you seen the trailer yet? Family-fun movies are another holiday tradition we enjoy–to escape from all the hustle and bustle for awhile.

*Most of the steps to this recipe are easy enough for kids to handle–but just watch out or the hot pot while melting the butter and marshmallows. Above all, make some memories with your kids by spending time together in the kitchen.
Cooking and sharing go hand-in-hand during the holiday season–and our kitchen is a busy place to be!
While waiting for the treats to cool, there’s a fun trivia game on the SING website to find the SING character you most resemble. I found out I’m most like Rosita, who is a mom herself, to a few more piglets than I have (25–whew!).

We found some cute snowflake sprinkles to make our Snowflake Treat Bars holiday festive, but by changing up the colors, you could make these treat bars for any occasion.
