Hi everyone! I’m so excited for December to be here! Christmas is my favorite holiday and plus we’re on break! Whoohoo!
Every December we take time off from school to bake cookies, make crafts, wrap gifts, and spread Christmas cheer to all who are near!
So as you can imagine this months meal plan is full of fun treats to help you get into the spirit too!
Christmas Crafts, Recipes, and Activities:
In addition to our normal menu, I’ve added in a bunch of fun crafts, activities, and holiday treats to help you make the season more special! The holiday treats and crafts are all listed in red, so you can pick them out easier. Of course, I’ve added in a TON of things to do, so you’re welcome to do a few, or all of them, it’s totally up to you! Everything that is underlined has links to posts so you can see what to do for the crafts and recipes!
And I’m just giving you a heads up…there are a LOT of sugary creative snacks in the menu. I wanted to fit in a variety of them so you could choose which ones you wanted to do. So you may want to substitute out some of the Christmas treats, for healthy treats. Just a fair warning
Download the 2017 December Monthly Meal Plan:
If you haven’t already used this before, you can click on any of the underlined menu items to get to the recipe.
I like to shop once a week, so I just make a list off of my menu plan and head to the store. I find that I spend less when I shop off of a list, then flying by the seat of my pants. I also end up with ingredients that will actually go together instead of a bunch of random items that don’t amount to anything.
