Create your own snack mix

This morning I decided we would make a snack mix. We use to do this a lot in my classroom (either based on our theme or just to have fun and get rid of odds and ends). This morning I used cinnamon chex, cheerios, pretzel sticks, raisins, bunny graham crackers, and chocolate peanutbutter swirled chips. You can use anything you have around. Ideas: goldfish crackers, puffs, marshmallows, m&ms, cereal of any kind, craisins, etc. Basically any bite sized muchy you have around your house. This is really fun for kids, because they can use a 1 cup or 1/2 cup to scoop out the ingredients and put them into a big ziplock. Seal, shake and enjoy. Yum, yum!

Ps... Also a good way to teach older kids about measuring tools if you use measuring cups!
