Rudolph Applesauce Cups 

Christmas is just around the corner and with that comes snack times at school. I always like to take something that is fun for the kids yet easy for the teachers. I saw many types of these Rudolph applesauce cups online and, although cute, they didn’t seem practical. When making mine I decided to wrap them in a napkin and attach a spoon directly to the applesauce cups. This will give the teachers 2 fewer things to have to pass around the classroom ( spoons & napkins). I also used pipe cleaners and twisty ties as I thought they would be much easier for the kiddos to open than some sort of string or ribbon. And, if you are a busy mom like me, these could certainly be made a month ahead of time if needed.

Materials:

How to:

Step 1: Sit applesauce cup in the middle of the napkin and bring corners up to meet each other.

Step 2: Slip the napkin wrapped applesauce into a clear treat bag and use twist ties that came with the treat bags to secure.

Step 3 – paint the tips of the pine cones with mod podge. When you are painting them try to imagine where the snow would fall, and those are the parts you want to paint.
