Hi! I’m Kimbo from a girl and a glue gun! and I’m super excited to be here!!!
for Halloween I whipped up this fun Monster Mix
and I thought…why not do a Christmas themed version! A Merry Mix!
You give each kid a little bag and let them add a spoonful of whatever they like! (like an unhealthy trail mix!!!)
I got the washi tape, the berry baskets, the little clothespins and the twine all at Michaels!!
I walked around the candy aisle trying to decide what looked like what! I’ve also added some other ideas you could use for each thing too!
For the elf treats: I used sour patch kids and gum drops. Lucky charms or fruit loops would be fun…mike and ikes, skittles (really anything colorful!)
For the snowman pieces: marshmallows…if you can get your hand on cotton candy that would be fun. you could also use dinner mints or those white yogurt drops.for the reindeer noses: whoppers and red gumballs. cocoa puffs would work…brown m&ms.
for the Christmas tree seeds: we used almonds…but any nut would really work (I was TRYING to add SOMETHING healthy!
for the reindeer poop: raisins, chocolate covered cinnamon bears, sugar babies,
for the grinch: anything green. green jelly beans, m&m’s kisses. there are loads of green stuff during Christmas time!
for the candy cane seeds: any kind of little peppermints!
for santa’s cookies: you could use any little cookie, we did chips ahoy, but they have little oreos, nutter butters, wafers…whatever you think santa likes to gorge himself on!
for the reindeer footprints: I used chocolate covered pretzels…and I really don’t know what else you could use?!
Anyone else have a great substitute?
Such a fun way to enjoy a treat!
and here are the printables!
