Blessing Mix~Thanksgiving Give Away

Here's a fun thing you all can do as a family and give it away to others that you are thankful for! :)
We make these for neighbors, and people we may see while out doing our Thanksgiving Shopping etc.
You could also use it as a hostess gift if your going somewhere for Thanksgiving or the parting gifts to the people who came to your home.

Blessing Mix
Here's what you need, this is a flexible recipe..do as much or as little as needed.
Box of Bugles
Pretzels
Popped Corn
Dried Fruit, raisins, or a family favorite
Peanuts

Mix it all together and put in baggies, then make a nice tag our of card stock, or paper and attach to bag.

Blessing Mix
The Bugles are a symbol of the cornucopia, a horn of plenty.
The Pretzels represent arms folded in thanks and prayer.
The Popcorn reminds us that during the first winter, the pilgrims were allowed only five kernels of corn per day because food was so scarce.
The Fruit is a reminder that Thanksgiving is a  celebrations of the harvest.
The Peanuts represent seeds, the potential of the bounteous harvest for the next season if they are planted and well tended.

Happy Thanksgiving!
The .......... Family.
