The kids and I planned and bought some ingredients for a...
Thanksgiving Harvest Mix
I got the idea here
And then tweaked it a bit
Here are the ingredients for our mix:
Bugles: A cornucopia of blessings and
a thankful heart for all of God's abundant blessings
Candy Corn: The sacrifice of the Pilgrims first winter.
Food was so scarce that settlers survived on just a few kernels of corn a day.
Craisins: Representing nuts and berries
the Pilgrims gathered in the new land.
Pumpkin Seeds: Promise of a future harvest,
one we will reap only if seeds are planted and tended with diligence.
Pretzels: Arms folded in prayer,
a freedom sought by those who founded our country.
Chocolate Chips: Sweet times spent with family and friends.
(Based on a recipe by Cynthia Townley Ewer)
We are planning to take our Harvest mix on a fun little nature hike over the holidays.
Hopefully it will be a good opportunity to cultivate attitudes of gratitude.
