Set Up a Thanksgiving Snack Mix Station for Kids

Save kids from hunger and boredom while waiting on Thanksgiving dinner by setting up a fun snack-mix station where they can help themselves to a custom sweet-and-salty creation topped by their own artwork.

  • Create Your Own Snack-Mix Station

    Keep the smallest holiday guests occupied while you finish Thanksgiving dinner with a snack station where they can concoct their own sweet-and-salty mix.

  • Free Printable Sign

    Download and print this handy sign then pop it into a standard 5x7 photo frame to display at your station along with a stack of pint-sized to-go containers and lids.

  • Turkey Time

    Set up a nearby area where the kids can decorate the lids using our thumbprint turkey tutorial. Be sure they add their name so they'll know which container is theirs.

  • Sweets & Treats

    Fill small bowls with candy, pretzels, popcorn and any other items that would be yummy in the mix. Use a tiered tray for pretty presentation and to make it easier for several kids to fill their favor cups at once. Tip: Try to stick with treats that come in fall colors.

  • Scoop It Up

    Fill the bowls with mini wooden scoops which are the perfect size for adding small candy and treats to the container and helping to control portion sizes.

  • Here Comes the Fun

    Allow the kids (and any hungry adults) to scoop their favorites into the pint-sized container.

  • Shake It, Baby

    Once the painted lids have fully dried, just add the lid and shake the container so the sweet and salty treats mix together.

  • Enjoy!

    Kids can munch on their custom mix during the Thanksgiving festivities or take their container home as a party favor.
