10 Easy Snack Mix Recipes for Kids (free printable)

With my resolution to create new memories in the new year, getting into the kitchen with N has been a priority. I’ve found it is so hard for her to wait for things to bake and cool.  These snack mix recipes for kids are the perfect, no bake solution and a fun way to get into the kitchen together.

Not only are these easy recipes simple enough for N to make on her own, but they are in a format, targeted specifically for beginning readers so that she can follow the recipe and develop beginning reading skills at the same time. It is a great way to integrate math and reading in the kitchen.

These snack mixes are a great thing for birthday parties. They are a great addition to a long hike. The best part is they are so much fun to make!
