The Christmas season is my favorite for many reasons. Besides the excitement of gifts and Christmas morning, I really love baking with my kids. Making treats with them is the perfect way to start celebrating the season. Easy Christmas treats are definitely the best way to go.

Luckily, I’ve got you covered when it comes to cute and festive treats that are both delicious and easy to make. I’m sharing my favorite 15 Christmas Treats for Kids to make!
