Thanksgiving Blessings Mix Recipe And Poem
To prepare the mix, grab a large bowl, a measuring cup and a scoop for putting the mix into the bags.
In the bowl, mix:
- 2 cups of Bugles
- 2 cups of pretzels
- 1 cup each of the dried fruit, nuts, candy corn and M & M’s.
- 1/2 cup of pumpkin or sunflower seeds.
Give it a good ‘stir’ to mix it all up and ta-dah! You have Thanksgiving blessings snack mix ready to go! Time to fill your bags! Seal the bags by stapling them closed with a pretty bag topper (or a bag topper with the blessing mix poem printed on it). Or by tying them with raffia, curling ribbon or twist ties.
If you’re using a gift tag, attach it with raffia, ribbon or twist ties before tying the bags closed.
These cello bags would all be great for your Thanksgiving blessing snack mix.
Now here’s the poem everyone loves for the Thanksgiving Blessings Mix bags.
You can write or type this poem on card stock or gift tags or even print out some pretty bag toppers. If you’re attaching it to the bag with a gift tag, raffia or yarn would be a pretty way to attach the tag to the bag.
~Thanksgiving Blessing Mix~
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: The sacrifices of the Pilgrim’s first winter. Food was so scarce that settlers survived on just a few kernels of corn a day.
Nuts or seeds: Promise of a future harvest, one we will reap only if seeds are planted and tended with diligence.
Dried fruits: Harvest gifts from our bountiful land.
M&M’s: Memories of those who came before us to lead us into a blessed future.
Hershey’s Kiss: The love of family and friends that sweetens our lives.
Isn’t that pretty? Now if you’re craft-challenged like I am, there’s a way to save time and frustration. Yep, printables! Check these out.
How To Make Thanksgiving Blessing Snack Mix Treat Bags

I love this video because it’s pretty much how I make mine. It’s very well done & you’ll be making up those goodie bags before you know it. This one uses Goldfish crackers, so the poem is a little different.
