Snacktivity: Super Simple DIY Holiday Snack Mix Ideas

Snacktivity: Super Simple DIY Holiday Snack Mix Ideas

‘Tis the season for Snacktivities! The kids are beginning to wrap up classes for the year and most people are at home, so it’s time to break out the aprons and go to work.


The thing we love most about a DIY snack mix like this is you can customize it any way you want. Turn this into a Snacktivity, lay out all of your mix-in’s on the table, give everyone a bag or their own snack bowl and put together your own custom holiday snack mix. The best part is each person will end up with something they really like. ⁣

Below we put together some ideas for a few different easy DIY holiday snack mixes. Enjoy!
