One of the first things you’ll need for these Santa cookie plate ideas is a festive plate. But don’t worry, you don’t need to spend a fortune. Head to your local Dollar Tree or any dollar store and pick up a simple white plate or the cute decorated plates always available in December (sometimes starting in October, seriously). These make a perfect canvas for your creativity and are budget-friendly too!

Designing the Santa Plate

Time to get creative! You and the little ones can create labels saying ‘Merry Christmas’ or ‘Cookies for Santa’. Some of the more inventive might want to draw some pictures for Santa — or write him a thank you note. Let their imaginations go. Plus they’ll be distracted for a while with just a few craft supplies.

Creating Your Own Personalized Cookies

You can even make your own personalized cookies shaped like Santa’s treats or anything that brings the holiday spirit to your home! Of course, Santa’s helpers are going to need some super power to get everything ready for a happy and bright Christmas morning. Choose your favorites. Wink, wink.

The Final Touch: A Drink

Don’t forget the glass of milk — or our favorite: White Chocolate Peppermint Latte! Santa and his helpers will surely appreciate a yummy drink to wash down the yummy cookies. Place it next to your Santa plate for a complete Christmas Eve setup.

Starting a New Christmas Tradition

Your easy DIY Santa cookie plate is ready! Not only is it a cute addition to your Christmas home decor, but it’s also a great way to start a new Christmas tradition. Imagine the excitement on your little kid’s face when they see that Santa has eaten the cookies they left out on the plate!

Maintaining Your Santa Plate

To ensure your plate lasts for many Christmases to come, hand wash it gently. Avoid scrubbing the design. With this level of care, you can enjoy your Santa cookie plate year after year.

Enjoy the Magic of Christmas Morning

These Santa cookie plate ideas are not just about creating a fun holiday project, they’re about creating real-life memories that last a lifetime.

So, get started on your easy Christmas cookie plate and bring in the holiday season with a fun tradition. And don’t forget, while Santa’s cookies may be a delicious treat, the real joy of Christmas is in the time spent together, making memories.

Happy holidays to you and yours (and Santa)!
