A Harvest Snack


Let children help assemble this snack mix as you talk about the meaning of each ingredient. Mix together

  • bugle-shaped corn snacks (cornucopias of plenty),
  • pretzel twists (arms folded in thanks),
  • candy corn (kernels of corn the Pilgrims used),
  • dried fruit (the harvest), and
  • sunflower seeds (the seeds to be planted for a harvest next year).

Distribute some of the mix to each child as a snack to enjoy while you talk about the things for which each child is thankful.
