Hawaii Mom Blog: Santa Bars




December 13, 2016

Santa Bars

Many years ago my son and I made these Santa Bars inspired by an article in Martha Stewart Living's Magazine for Santa and Snowmen Bars.

Of course, they did not turn out to look like the ones in the magazine, and I also didn't use the exact same materials--I just used whatever I had in the house--cotton balls, construction paper, etc.

I also used boxes of chocolate covered macadamia nuts and kaki mochi instead of candy bars.

I simply wrapped each box of candy in white paper, glued on a red triangle for the hat, and topped it with a cotton ball.  I took a rectangle piece of red paper and pasted it on the bottom of the box.  For the beard I positioned a square cut with scallop shears.  I then drew on a face.

I did one sample to model the finished product, and my son (just 4 years old at the time) copied as much as he could.  He glued everything on, and drew Santa's face.

It was a cute and easy Christmas craft!
