This is the perfect snack to take with you on a nature walk or a hike. Let the kiddos choose what they want to put in it(give them options), and then let them do all of the measuring and pouring. Finally, let them mix it together and scoop it into snackbags for the hike.

1/4 cup of 2 different dried fruits(or 3 if they like)-dried cranberries-chopped and pitted dates-dried apricots-banana chips-dried apple chips
