Thanksgiving Blessing Mix

The boys wanted to do something special for their friends at co-op for Thanksgiving. When the girls were little we used to do all sorts of fun little things for their preschool class every time a holiday rolled around. Of course, that was several children ago, and they were in preschool at separate times, and their classes were smaller.

But, how could I say no? I remembered a cute little project I’d come across years ago and decided to update it for them to make for their friends.

It’s a fun project that you can pull together quickly! That is unless you need 60+ of them- I think my boys are in the biggest classes at co-op.

For this project you’ll need:

  • Bugles brand snacks
  • Tiny twist pretzels
  • Candy corn
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Printable tag
  • Piece of card board like a cereal box
  • Stapler
  • Zipper top bags

In each bag, put a small spoon of sunflower seeds, several pretzels and bugles, 5 candy corns. Seal bag.

The tags are the trickiest part of the whole project.

1) Print tags and cut sheet into quarters. A paper cutter is super helpful if you have one.

2) If you want, write your child’s name under the “Happy Thanksgiving.”

3) Cut a square of cardboard 4 ½” x 4 ½”.

4) Line up the cardboard with the bottom of the tag (where the owl turkey) is, and fold the “Happy Thanksgiving” flap over.

5) Staple tag onto the top of the sealed bag.
