I was the helping mom for my daugher's girl scout meeting last week. They are working on completing their energy and conservation-themed journey this year and as part of that, were making an assortment of bird feeders and bird houses to place around the area. Helping mom duties include providing a little snack and since I can't do anything like a normal person, I decided to make a snack with a bird feeding / bird house theme. (Is anyone else obsessed with themes? I think I missed my calling - I should be working at Disney World.) Here's what I made...
This was surprisingly delicious. Mixed Corn Chex, Rice Krispies, hulled pumpkin and sunflower seeds, Craisins, golden raisins, and some mini-chocolate chips. Yum! This is now my go-to recipe for trail mix. And it works for kids with nut allergies but still packs a protein punch.
Cheap, easy, and they really do look like twigs.
You know, for the baby birds in the nest! Only one per girl so we didn't get into a sugar-high situation...
I stopped short of making custom water bottle labels, because that would have been excessive, but also mostly because I ran out of time.
