This post has been a long time coming! A few years ago, I did a Class Halloween Party for my son’s TK class and we came up with a Fall Snack Mix (or Halloween Boo Mix) that had follow-along directions to encourage independence and practice their counting skills. Ever since I shared the details of this party (and his older brother’s 5th grade Class Halloween Party), I have gotten lots of requests for those printable directions!
Well, a few years have passed, but better late than never, right? Read on for details of our Fall Snack Mix and download the free printable OR prefer to call it Halloween Boo Mix? I wrote up a different post with different free printable here! Oh and I even made some Snack/Treat Bag Toppers for you to use for both the Fall and the Boo Mix! I really tried to cover all my bases this fall. Hope it makes all your parties and celebrations fun!

Fall Snack Mix
**You can, of course, put anything in your Fall Snack Mix! Because we were dealing with little ones, we tried to keep it as healthy as possible (with a little splash of sweet M&M fun to celebrate the holiday! However, if you are looking to use our printable directions, you do need to stick to the items pictured.) Of course you could always cross things out or change numbers as needed!)
We set up our snack options in this simple divided trays, but you could also use simple plastic bowls and spoons.
For the Fall Snack Mix, we created this printable for kids to make their own by counting and following the directions provided. They can skip any item they don’t like, but this helps them to create their own snack (and not eat too many M&M’s!) Plus, giving the children instructions to follow promotes independence and gives them a fun way to practice their counting skills!
Here is a sample of the Fall Snack Mix Printable Follow-Along Directions that you can receive by signing up below. (It won’t have the watermark of course!)
While we used scoops to count out our portion, you can use spoons or any other means of keeping germ sharing to a minimum! =) We have used Halloween snack cups in the past, but for Class Parties, I prefer to use snack bags and attach treat bag toppers for those children who wanted to bring their snack home with them. You can purchase the Fall Treat Bag Topper here.
This Fall Snack Mix was a big hit with the kiddos and was perfect for our quiet Fall Themed Class Halloween Party. However, if you have older kids who want a little bit more of a Halloween slant on their snack mix, check out our Boo Mix (with more printable directions and bag toppers!), as well as our Candy Corn Snack Mix, Zombie Snack Mix and Pumpkin Spice Snack Mix coming soon! So many deliciously snacky options for the fall!
