2 cups Bugles Brand Corn Snacks
2 cups Pretzels
1 cup Candy Corn
1 cup Dried or Candy Fruits
1 cup Peanuts or other nuts or seeds
1 Cup M&M's
1 Regular sized bag Hershey's Kisses

In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients together. Make this mix as a family and eat while discussing each ingredient and how it relates to Thanksgiving.

Each ingredient in this snack mix symbolizes something associated with the Harvest Season (Thanksgiving)

Bugles: Shaped like a cornucopia or Horn of Plenty, a symbol of our nation's abundance.
Pretzels: Arms folded in prayer, a freedom sought by those who founded our country.
Candy Corn: Sacrifices of the Pilgrims' first winter. Food was so scarce that settlers survived on just a few kernels of corn a day.
Nuts: Promise of a future harvest, one we will reap only if seeds are planted and tended with diligence.
Dried fruits: Harvest gifts of our bountiful land.
M&Ms: Memories of those who came before us to guide us to a blessed future.
Hershey's Kiss: The love of family and friends that sweetens our lives.

Personal Notes:
I made bags of this Blessing Mix and on top of the bag I printed out a little card with the explanation of the Blessing Mix on cardstock. I stapled it to the top of the bag and tied a bow.
