Thanksgiving Blessing Mix

Thanksgiving Blessing Mix
This is a fun mix to give to family, friends or children in your class at Thanksgiving. 
This year we are giving it to our Sunday School class.

What do you need?

Small Pretzels
Candy Corn
Dried Fruit or Raisins
Sunflower Seeds
Hershey's Kisses

In a large bowl gently mix all ingredients, except Hershey's Kisses.
Place 1/2 a cup or more in a treat or snack bag. Add one Hershey's Kiss to each bag. 
Attach the following explanation:

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 our nation's founders

Candy Corn: the sacrifices of the Pilgrims' first winter. Food was so scarce that settlers survived on just a few kernels of corn.

Nuts & Seeds: promise of a future harvest, one that will reap only if seeds are planted and tended with diligence.

Dried Fruit: harvest gifts from our bountiful land.

M&M's: sweet memories of those who died for our freedoms and promise of a blessed future.

Hershey's Kisses: the love of family and friends that sweetens our lives.

Happy Thanksgiving
