Feed Your Faith Blessings Mix

I found this idea at This is a nice alternative for the Thanksgiving Blessing Mix if you wish to incorporate it into a lesson. As far as I know there aren't any free printable cards available for this one. Just get creative with your computer or scrapbooking supplies!

Feed Your Faith Blessings Mix

2 cups small pretzels
1 cup dried fruit bits or raisins
1 cup peanuts or sunflower seeds
1 cup M&Ms brand chocolate candy
16 Hershey's brand chocolate kisses

In a large bowl, mix all ingredients except Hershey's Kisses.
Place 1/3 to 1/2 cup Blessing Mix in small cellophane treat bags.Add one Hershey's Kiss to each bag.Close bag with chenille stem or twist-tie or raffia and attach a card with the following:

Pretzels: Arms folded in prayer - I Kings 8:282, 2 Chronicles 6:19, Ephesians 6:18
Dried Fruits: Blessings & Gifts - John 3:16-17 , Deuteronomy 28:1-14
Nut or Seeds: Promise of a future harvest, one we will reap only if seedsare planted and tended to with diligence.Galatians 6:8-10,Matthew 9:37, 38
