The advent activity for my 2.5 year old today is dinner by the Christmas tree. I can't think of any minimal mess finger food ideas. I want it to be special since it's obviously not something we do often.

There is always grilled cheese, but that doesn't seem very exciting

Thanks for any ideas!!

It doesn't have to be the food that is exciting, but the presentation

Take out a small platter and lay out some fresh broccoli cuts in the shape of a Christmas tree. Then you and little person decorate the tree with veggies and such (grape tomatos, garbanzo beans, carrot slices, etc.) If you have mini cookie cutters you can cut some shapes out of cheese.

And you'll need a star too. Maybe the grilled cheese sandwich?

You could also use Christmas cookie cutters to cut things into fun shapes.

I just don't see why people think I'm too patronizing (that means I treat them as if they were stupid.)

And get a big plastic table cloth and put it down on the floor where he will eat. That will contain the mess.
