trail mix

Hey, folks!

Who’s ready for an awesome trail mix recipe AND some printable coupons so you can create it and save big?! Awesome! Okay, so first let me tell you a little back story. Lately, Wyatt (we call him “bear“) has been super-helpful around the house. He wants to help me with any/everything that I do. He helps rotate laundry, helps feed the dog, etc. Well I have been snacking on Trail Mix a lot lately, so I asked if he wanted to help me make some. He didn’t say a word, just came over and sat down beside me checking out the ingredients.

I picked up the following ingredients at Walmart and used printable coupons to help with the cost. There are currently some great high-value coupons out (I’ll put a link at the bottom of the post). 


We got:

  • Jet-Puffed Marshmallows
  • Rasins
  • Planters Peanuts
  • Hershey’s Chocolate Chips

Wyatt was SO excited to help. I just opened the ingredients and set a container in front of him, stuck a chalkboard label on it, and watched as he layered each item. It turned out to be a great sensory activity for us to do together. He got to feel many different textures and listen as the ingredients fell. And it gave him a sense of pride – he just loves helping out and I love seeing that look on his face when he completes a task. SUCH a sweetheart.
