Easy Christmas Meal Ideas the Kids Can Help With

How can the kids help you to prep or cook Christmas dinner? Even though your littles can’t chop vegetables or use the stove, you can still find plenty of ways for them to pitch in. Check out the easy holiday recipe ideas children can help with.

Christmas Salad

Get in the holiday spirit with a green (and red) salad. Not only will this festive starter add cheer to your Christmas dinner table, it’s also a healthy menu option. Choose your family’s favorite greens and help your child to wash and dry them thoroughly. Put the greens in a large salad bowl and give your child sliced or chopped red and green papers to add. Garnish the red and green salad with dried cranberries, sliced apples and the dressing of your choice.

Cheesy Christmas Tree Bread

Create a cute Christmas tree—out of dough. Make your favorite dough recipe or use a ready-made refrigerated version. Roll the dough and cut it into two-inch squares or rectangles. Sprinkle shredded parmesan cheese onto the dough and roll each piece into a ball. Arrange the dough balls into a Christmas tree shape on a cookie sheet. Follow the dough’s instructions for baking or bake the tree for 15 to 20 minutes (or until it’s thoroughly cooked and golden brown on the top) at 450 degrees Fahrenheit.

Red and Green Parfaits

Finish your holiday meal with a red and green gelatin parfait. Make batches of each color gelatin. Spoon a green layer of chilled firm gelatin into a clear glass. Add a layer of whipped topping and a layer of red gelatin. Repeat until you reach the top of the glass. Add more whipped topping and red and green sprinkles.
