Here’s a semi-healthy Christmas treat for you, Santa Hats! Holiday parties and gathering can do a number on our sugar intake during the holidays so I am always looking for healthy alternatives to serve. Our Santa hats can be served up for a snack, lunch or holiday gathering.

Christmas Rhyme

Since I am a big believer in adding an educational twist to all things(as much as I can) I will also share with you a simple Santa Rhyme.

S A N T A  (Sung to BINGO tune)

There is a man we know so well,

And SANTA is his name Ho

S A N T A

S A N T A

S A N T A

And SANTA is his name HO!

The children learn how to spell SANTA very quickly and have fun with this song and treat! You can also replace the letter you omit with the word HO so by the end of the song they are saying Ho, Ho, Ho, Ho, Ho.  If your kids need a visual just cut out the letters SANTA out and HO out 5x and add it in each time they omit one of the Santa letters out.  

Healthy Alternatives

Now onto the yummy and healthy treat. Our family loves fruit so this was a big hit and ready in less then 2 minutes. I love cute and easy! What you will need is just 2 ingredients: strawberries and low-fat cool whip. You can even use yogurt or cottage cheese for the bottom fluffy white part of Santa’s hat.  The point of the hat may be difficult to add with yogurt but might work with cottage cheese.  The strawberries are small so keep in mind you aren’t using a lot of whip cream.

What you do is cut the stem off in a way that you’re creating a base. Place it on your plate and spray whip cream around the bottom and a little dabble at the top.
