Harvest Blessing Mix
For the last few years, we've made this Harvest Blessing Mix (which I found here) for school parties and other festivities. It's yummy and meaningful. Here's what you'll need to make it and what the ingredients represent:
Bugles: represents a cornucopia, a horn of plenty.
Pretzels: represents arms folded in thanks and prayer.
Candy Corn: during the first Winter, the pilgrims were each allotted only 5 kernels of corn per day because food was so scarce. (I got a 22 oz. bag of candy corn for .69 cents on Halloween clearance!)
Dried Fruit: Thanksgiving is the celebration of the harvest.
Peanuts and/or Sunflower Seeds: represents the potential of a bounteous harvest for the next season if they are planted and well tended.
There's not really a recipe for the mix. You can use equal parts of each ingredient or just eye-ball it.
This year I made simple little printable tags to include in the snack-size bags.
Go HERE to print these little tags. You can print them on Avery Badge paper (#5395) or on cardstock.
These make great little gifts for neighbors, teachers, co-workers, classmates...
put a bowl of it on the kids table for Thanksgiving...
or just use the mix to snack on anytime!
Happy Thanksgiving, y'all!!
