Autumn Trail Mix: Kids in the Kitchen

Leave a comment

As a part of our curriculum, the kids and I are in the kitchen at least once a week.  How amazing is the kitchen for math, science, health and nutrition, social studies (international foods), literature (making a favorite recipe out of a book), and general life skills? 

That being said, this recipe is not from our curriculum.  (The curriculum called for beet, radish, and spinach salad.  Yuck!)  This recipe also does not have educational value.  It’s just fun! 

We needed a quick snack and we had these items on hand.  We dumped and mixed and added what was in our cupboards.  Everything was the kids’ idea. 

So we now present to you the autumn trail mix, created by our resident four and six year old.  You would never believe it, but it’s delicious!!!!!!  As if these random foods were made to be together. 

Let us know if you give it a try:)
