Instructions

"I made little bags of this Blessing Mix and on top of the bag I printed out a cute little Thanksgiving turkey and the explanation of the Blessing Mix on cardstock.

I stapled it to the top of the bag and tied a cute raffia bow in fall colors to that... Everyone loved it and it makes a nice little treat for the neighbors too!"

Use even amounts of all the ingredients listed above or mix and match as you like. In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients together. You can make this mix as a family and eat while discussing each ingredient and how it relates to Thanksgiving.

If this is for a gift, make a card with these descriptions:

Each ingredient in this snack mix symbolizes something associated with the Harvest Season (Thanksgiving).

  • Bugles Brand Corn Snacks - represents a cornucopia, a horn of plenty.
  • Pretzels - represents arms folded in thanks and prayer.
  • Candy Corn and/or Corn Nuts Brand Snack - during the first Winter, the pilgrims were each allotted only 5 kernels of corn per day because food was so scarce.
  • Dried or Candy Fruits - Thanksgiving is the celebration of the harvest.
  • Peanuts and/or Sunflower Seeds - seeds represent the potential of a bounteous harvest for the next season if they are planted and well tended.

You can package the mix in zip-top sandwich bags and use this printable tag stapled to the top of the bag: FREE Printable Tag.
