Winter and Christmas Party Snack Table Ideas

Elementary school winter and Christmas parties are something that students look forward to all year long! Kids make such fun party memories that they'll remember for a lifetime.

As much fun as school parties are, sometimes they can be stressful for the planners because the holidays are a busy time already and we often don't have time to add anything more to our to-do lists. If you've volunteered to bring in a treat for your kiddo's party, below are some easy and cute snack table ideas. 

Before you start planning your table items make sure to grab a FREE PRINTABLE at for the kids to do while snacking! 

  Decorate the snack table with white tablecloths, snowflake decorations, and a fun centerpiece to add to the wintry atmosphere. These snack ideas below are simple and will keep the little ones happy and satisfied during the winter party!

Snowy Popcorn Mix:


  • Popcorn
  • White chocolate
  • Sprinkles
  • Mini marshmallows


  1. Melt white chocolate and drizzle it over the popcorn.
  2. Sprinkle with your choice of sprinkles and mix in mini marshmallows.



Pretzel Snowflakes:


  • Pretzel sticks
  • Large marshmallows
  • Mini marshmallows

This is a fun and interactive snack—a mix of sweet and salty and not too sugary. 

Give each student a few marshmallows and a handful of pretzel sticks and see who can make the best snowflake. After they are done they get to eat it. 



Rice Crispy Treats - Themed:


  • Pre-packed rice crispy treats
  • White meltable chocolate OR easier solution is premade frosting in a package
  • Blue and white sprinkles or Christmas color sprinkles
  • Optional treat sticks

Melt the white chocolate, dip half of the rice crispy in it and shake the sprinkles over top. If you're in a time crunch you can use the simple frosting pack instead of melting white chocolate. 




Reindeer Pretzel Snacks:


  • Large pretzel sticks
  • Regular pretzels
  • Candy eyes
  • Meltable chocolate
  • Red round candy of your choice 

Melt the chocolate, dip the pretzels, and add candy eyes, a red candy nose, and small twisted pretzels for antlers to create adorable reindeer snacks.
