Christmas will soon be here, but there’s still time for a little mealtime fun! Serve up this healthy and happy Rudolph baked potato and you’re sure to put a smile on little faces!
These little reindeer are easy to put together, and my kids love them. Why not make it a tradition?
How to Make a Rudolph Baked Potato:
Cook up the potatoes and vegetables as you normally would, then let the children have fun assembling their reindeer before they eat them.
Make a slice in the baked potato for your child if they need help.
Make a bed for Rudolph to lie on using the vegetable of your child’s choosing.
Place the baked potato on top and add some topping to the back, like a warm and cozy blanket to keep Rudolph comfortable. We used grated cheese, but you could use flaked tuna fish, saucy beans, or any food your child enjoys.
We added peas for eyes and a cherry tomato for Rudolph’s shiny red nose. As you see from the photo below, we just made a hollow for it to sit in.
Then we broke a small pretzel twist to use for the antlers.
Then it’s time for the taste test…
You can see that Kallista thoroughly enjoyed having a Rudolph baked potato served up for dinner!
This photo was quite obviously take some time ago, but the children remember making this meal, and I will surprise them on Christmas Eve with the ingredients to be creative once again!
We also have more reindeer activities, so check those out, too.
