Christmas "Thank You" for Sunday School Teachers

We have five kids.  Each one has a few Sunday School teachers and women's Bible study teachers.  A few of them have additional Wednesday night club leaders and Junior church teachers.  Needless to say, that adds up to a whole lot of people...31 to be exact...that pour into the lives of my children every week...voluntarily.  Except for the occasional hug from one of the kids in their classes, most of these children's ministry workers, never get the proper "thanks" and recognition they deserve. 

Christmas time has always brought the perfect opportunity to show our gratitude for all the many hours of service these volunteers provide.  One of our Advent Countdown Activities has always been to make some kind of edible treat for each of them.

This year we chose to make Chocolate Pretzel Treats.  With only three basic ingredients and easy-to-implement instructions, the kids were able to make them from start to finish all on their own...even my 3-year-old!


Treats for Sunday School Teachers-The Unlikely Homeschool

You will need:

1 bags of pretzel rings or squares
2 -3 bags of Hershey's© Kiss candies 
1 bag of red and green Christmas M&Ms© 

Directions:

Bake for 2-3 minutes.  Kisses should be shiny, but not melted.

Push an M&M© onto the Kiss until the chocolate spreads to the edge of the pretzel.  (If the chocolate does not spread all the way to the edge, the chocolate center will fall out of the ring once the treat is cooled.)

Chill completely.

Fill festive gift bags with these yummy treats and say "thank you" to all those many men and women who minister to your kids.

  1. Cute, and a great tutorial! Always nice to find something easy to make when you've got ALL those people to thank! I'm lucky this year because my kids (only two) have THE SAME Sunday School teacher. :)

    1. Wow...that's handy. My two middle boys have had the same teacher at times. Not currently, though.

  2. Yummy! I'm a sucker for salty AND sweet at the same time. Have you ever tried this with Rolos? That's even better.

    1. We haven't made these exact ones with Rolos, but something similar with a nut. NUMMY! I'll have to try Rolos with the M&Ms sometime. That sounds great.
