Thanksgiving Mix

About 5 years ago we visited family in Idaho for Thanksgiving. (It's so sad that it's been that long!)  My in-laws showed us a good time, as usual, and for our Family Home Evening treat my mother-in-law had us make this Thanksgiving Mix.  

As we put each ingredient in we talked about what they had to do with Thanksgiving.  It was a yummy treat and perfect for Thanksgiving!!

Thanksgiving Blessing Mix
2 c Bugles brand corn snacks (Shaped like a cornucopia or horn of plenty)
2 c mini pretzels - not sticks! (Represents arms folded in prayer)
1 c candy corn (During the winter the Pilgrims were allotted only 5 kernels of corn per day because food was so scarce.)
1 c dried fruit (Thanksgiving is the celebration of harvest.)
1 c sunflower seeds (Seeds represent the potential of a bounteous harvest for the next season.)
1 c Goldfish crackers (Represent the teaching by the Native Americans to the Pilgrims that a fish planted with seeds would help grow healthy crops.)
