I fed all those things to my grand~darlings!
Now, before you call Child Protective Services on me,
let me tell you a bit more.....
Merry Mix is a fun candy choice bar I set up for
the grands on Christmas Eve.
Along with Grinch Snacks....
and Elf Treats....
.....the grands had fun filling their candy boats.
The round dining table in our kitchen was
just the perfect size and height for this project.
The Elf Treat bowl contained gummy treats.
The Reindeer Noses bowl contained malted milk
balls and large red hots (Rudolph's).
Candy cane seeds- soft peppermints
Reindeer Footprints- chocolate covered pretzels
Snowman Pieces- mini marshmallows
Reindeer Poop- chocolate covered raisins
Christmas Tree Seeds- salted almonds
Grinch Snacks- green M&Ms and green and
Santa Cookies- Royal Danish butter cookies
Now, do you feel better about me feeding my precious
grand~darlings Reindeer Poop?
Avery, the oldest grand, told me I could also call these
little pieces "droppings".....
I told her I just like saying
She laughed and said it was more fun to say!
Each bowl had a tiny, red cup to scoop
up the treats in that bowl....
The grands tried guessing what would go into each bowl....
.....it was hard to wait!
Once each bowl was filled we talked about all the
yummy goodies that awaited them.
They were so good to carefully use the little
Filling those little, polka dot bowls was fun!
I'll let each one share their personal mix with you....
Avery, our artist....
Emery, our doll lover.....
Hmmm, Emery does not have any
in her bowl.
She wasn't taking any chances!
On the other hand, Hudson our Lego Guy, has lots
So how much of that candy do you think
you can eat, Hudson?
ALL of it, Gigi!
They ate a little bit and then we had dinner.
I was glad that they actually ate their dinner.
After dinner, they hit the table again, just
to top off their treats!
They had fun mixing their own candy treats
at the Merry Mix table.
They had one more treat to enjoy after we
opened our Christmas gifts.....
Gigi's elf showed up with some nice, decorated
cookies.....he even tried one!
The Merry Mix printables I used for this fun
project can be found at the blog
