One of our favorite activities to do while we are camping is going on a family hike. It’s no secret that every successful hike needs a tasty snack. What better snack to bring on a hike than the one and only snack that has trail right in the name. Yup, you guessed it… TRAIL MIX! We are big trail mix fans and love coming up with unique combinations of ingredients. Today I’m sharing how to set up your very own DIY Trail Mix Bar. It’s easy enough to bring with you while you’re camping, but would also be perfect for a playdate, camping themed birthday party, or just a fun afternoon snack. Plus you can download the FREE printable sign at the bottom of the post so you can easily put together a trail mix making party of your own!
Ingredients for a DIY Trail Mix Bar
- Your favorite Trail Mix Ingredients (We used Pretzels, Peanuts, Yogurt Covered Raisins, Raisins, Banana Chips, M&M’s, and Dark Chocolate covered almonds)
- Small Bags
- Bowls or serving dishes to put the ingredients in
- Spoons for each bowl
- Optional: Printable Trail Mix Sign (FREE Download at the bottom of this post)
Once you’ve gathered all of your supplies the set up is really easy! Simply pour your trail mix ingredients into the serving dishes and place the baggies and printed sign next to the ingredients. You’re all ready to go for some super fun trail mix making!
Invite your kiddo to grab a bag and add their favorite ingredients. Wouldn’t this be such a fun activity for a playdate or camping themed birthday party?
I love seeing the unique combinations that everyone comes up with! We used pretty basic ingredients for our trail mix bar, but you could get really creative with your ingredient options.
