Thanksgiving Blessing Mix

Thanksgiving Blessing Mix
I needed to take a snack to Henry's school and found this. Very simple. And there are variations here and there for this mix. Here is what I used:
Bugles Shaped like a cornucopia, a symbol of our nations’ abundance.
Pretzels Arms folded in prayer, a freedom sought by those who founded our country.
Popcorn The sacrifices of the Pilgrims’ 1st winter. Food was so scarce that settles survived on a few corn kernels a day.
Pumpkin seeds Promise of a future harvest, one we will reap only if seeds are planted and tended with diligence.
M&Ms Memories of those who came before us to lead us into a blessed future.

One trick is to put the big items all in a bowl: popcorn, pretzels, bugels & then add the pumpkins seeds and MMs to the bags individually, so that each bag gets a bit of each component. And love the cup tip I saw somewhere, it makes it easier to fill the bags.

You can grab this template below. But there are others around the web-this is one i did up right quick.

 Smart tip for filling ziploc bags with goodies like this.

 Also, I read to Henry's class and found this book, really cute if you want to share it with your kiddos.
