make a sweet snack mix

Snack happy and full of love, make a valentine’s day inspired snack mix for everyone to enjoy.This would be great for a small Valentine’s Day party or even a birthday party activity if you have a hike or walk planned. You can even host a Valentine’s Day scavenger hunt after the snack is prepared or just mix up a smattering of small bags to give as valentines.

You will need:
*cereal of choice such as puffed rice or granola
*mini pretzels or pretzel sticks
*dried fruit
*nuts if there are no allergies
*anything else you want to add

scrumdilly-do it!

Set out your ingredients in small bowls or cups or maybe even a muffin tin. Make sure each child has a baggie and a spoon. Allow them to scoop up what they want to add to their mix. 
You can make up a large batch and have your wee ones scoop a bunch into small baggies. Tie the baggies off with ribbon, add a message from your kidlet and give out for Valentine’s Day. Make sure there are no nuts if there are any known allergies!

Or you can take your wee ones out for a walk and count how many red objects you see. Add a camera, make up teams and take pictures for the scavenger hunt. Whatever you do, it is of course, all about the eating of the snack happy love mix! Happy Valentine's Day!
