Circus Snack Mix

Circus Snack Mix

As we prepared for our recent trip to the circus, we talked food.  Who could leave out a discussion of the food found at the circus?  

Since we were allowed to take our own food, we decided to mix up our own treat that would incorporate the best aspects of the circus.  I gathered up all of the ingredients and then gave the kids large bags so that they could scoop as much of each in as they wanted.  

The kids loved mixing up their own “Circus Mix” and happily munched away all through the show – and much of the afternoon.  Since most of the ingredients are fairly healthy, I didn’t mind them eating a larger-than-usual portion.  The wide variety of ingredients made it an especially fun treat for a very fun day!
