Something to Celebrate

Thanksgiving Snack Mix

Posted on: November 16, 2012

Hannah (with the assistance of her sous chef, yours truly) made this really neat snack mix idea we found on pinterest of course.  We put it in cute bags so she could give it to her teachers at preschool today since today was her last day of school before Thanksgiving break.  The snack mix is super easy to make (great for your 4 year old chef) and you can modify the ingredients to your liking but here is what we included in ours:

  • Bugles (we used the caramel variety which are super good and super addictive)
  • Sunflower Seeds
  • Dried cherries (could also use craisins or raisins)
  • Candy Corn (Hannah’s favorite)
  • Classic Knot Mini Pretzels

We poured the snack mix into Wilton’s clear plastic icing bags and secured the top with a pipe cleaner and a sparkly brown ribbon.  We used the free printable from this site and attached that to the pipe cleaner.  I used some craft paper I had in my stash to glue the printable to.  The printable includes a description of what each item in the mix stands for regarding Thanksgiving.  Here is a photo of our snack mix label:

Of course, Hannah and I had to “test” the mix after we made it to make sure it was safe for her teachers.  We proclaimed it very safe 🙂  This also would be fun to have out for your Thanksgiving guests to snack on!
