Fall Scarecrow Snack Mix

This week was my first time ever sending in a preschool snack with Mila. It was an exciting mom moment for me! Of course, I made sure it was a nut free mix that everyone would enjoy. Then we came up with the Fall Scarecrow Snack Mix.

Here’s everything I used to make this nut free Scarecrow Snack Mix:

  • Pretzels
  • Chex Cereal
  • Caramel Corn
  • m&m’s
  • Candy Corn
  • Candy Pumpkins
  • Rollos

The best part of this mix is it’s super easy to put together. All you have to do is find a big bowl and pour everything in.

Unfortunately, my big bowls weren’t big enough, so I had to keep making the mix over and over again. Good thing it’s easy and doesn’t take a lot of time to do it!

One thing I wish I would have gotten more of was the caramel corn. When I went to Target, they were almost sold out of the ‘monster mix.’ The monster mix just have chocolate drizzle and sprinkles. Some of the other caramel corn had pecans and other nuts. Obviously, I didn’t want to send any type of nuts to a preschool classroom in case of allergies.

Mila loved this mix, but she was definitely picking out all of the chocolate and Chex cereal!

I loved making this Fall Scarecrow Mix for Mila’s preschool party… and keeping the extras at home for us to share too. Here’s the little Tik Tok video I made to show how I made it all. Even though it’s pretty self explanatory, I loved how it all came together.

The end result is beautiful too!


What is your favorite snack or food item to share at classroom parties? I’d love some Christmas suggestions.
