I started with a red plastic caddy base for all of my snack boxes. These are perfect – just the right size, multiple compartments, and a handle for easy carrying and handling. Then, I added themed snacks, treats, and decorations.
This DIY Santa Christmas Movie Snack Box is perfect for watching The Polar Express, The Santa Clause movie series or our favorite Santa movies, The Santa Chronicles!
