It’s no secret Southerners love good food and giving thanks. Mix it all together for a healthy and fun holiday food craft.
For the Snack Mix
Gobble up a seasonal snack mix from Sprouts bulk bins. Toss together:
- 1 scoop Dark chocolate-covered pretzels
- 2 scoops Apple cinnamon granola
- 3 scoops Cranberry trail mix.
Portion in brown sacks from the paper goods aisle and adorn with handcrafted turkeys.
Let’s Talk Turkey
Cut heart shapes from craft paper in your school colors. Overlap the hearts a smidgen and secure with tape on the back. Cut 1 1/2-inch rounds from brown paper using a craft punch. Doodle a sweet little turkey mug using a marker. Finish with a holiday saying and attach to the sacks for heart-warming smiles.
