Time: 30 minutes
Materials: Your favorite trail mix ingredients
Animals survive winter by either storing fat on their bodies or gathering food stores to eat during the winter.
Today, we invite you to create your very own winter survival trail mix! Together with your family, brainstorm items that won’t spoil that you could take on walks or hikes. This could include nuts, dried fruit like cranberries or apple slices, chocolate chips, and seeds like pepitas!
Set out all of your possible ingredients. Provide your child with a reusable bag or container and a teaspoon. Then, invite them to create their very own hibernation trail mix.
Enjoy all winter long.
