Make Christmas Treats for Santa!

Santa Claus will be really busy come Christmas Eve, so leave out a plate of sweet treats to help him fuel up for his long journey. Even though he has a soft spot for milk and cookies, he loves munching on a variety of snacks, so check out some of Kidzworld's yummy ideas for Christmas treats!

Jingle Balls

You might make a mess in the kitchen while preparing these chocolate-covered peanut butter balls, but Santa will totally love 'em!

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 package of chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 tbsp parawax

Instructions:

  • Mix peanut butter, sugar, butter and vanilla in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate for an hour.
  • Melt chocolate chips and parawax over low heat.
  • Take the chilled peanut butter mixture and roll 'em into balls about the size of a quarter.
  • Using toothpicks, dip and coat the balls in chocolate. Place them on a cookie sheet covered with wax paper and refrigerate until they're ready to serve.

Fruits, Vegetables and Sandwiches

Santa may have a sweet tooth, but he also loves fruits, veggies and sandwiches. Make him something healthy to snack on, like turkey on whole wheat bread, and cut up some carrots and celery sticks. You can also leave him an apple or banana to munch on-the-go.

Minty Hot Chocolate

Help Santa quench his thirst with a cup of hot chocolate. You can probably find a package of Nestle Hot Chocolate Mix in the kitchen cupboard. Add a candy cane as a garnish to turn it into a minty hot chocolate so that Santa will have fresh breath all night long!

Reindeer Treats

Don't forget to leave treats for the reindeer cuz they'll be just as hungry as Santa! Here's a quick and easy snack to make for them - mix rolled oats, raisins and dried fruits together in a big bowl. You can buy dried cranberries, apricots or dates at the grocery store. Sprinkle this dry mixture on the lawn or patio so that Rudolph and his buddies can enjoy a snack while Santa's inside puttin' presents under the Christmas tree.

Definite red flag; talk about it with him/her/them.  other signs, include: -being doted and adored one day, and the next being pushed away and ignored, -you're afraid of your partner -they obsess over and call/text you constantly -you may find you've lost your confidence -many ups and downs in the relationship, constant roller coaster -you aren't yourself. you change and adapt for them, drop hobbies if they're not into them, etc. -something tells you you cant trust them again, there are many resources out there if you need to talk. never be afraid to speak about it to someone- a family member, a teacher, a close friend, the police, a guidance counselor, etc.  I bolded that one part. The whole thread is great. And that one is a sign. But remember people with mental illness may also show signs like this to. If they have a good they they may spoil you and love you, and then the next day they're having a bad one. So they might push you away. They also may suddenly dote on you one day also to make up for a bad day. I'm not making an excuse, it's still a ver bad thing to do. I'm just putting it out there.

Of course not! What kinds of people just go through their everyday lives shoving good kids into hard metal lockers? It's not right. I would never associate myself with a group like that. What kind of popular is that, shoving kids into lockers?
