Have you watched the Minions movie yet? I know my boys can’t wait to see it, even my husband is on board to see this one. The last 2 have been humorous enough to keep my husband and I entertained and yet still laughable for the kids.
When we enjoy movies as a family it’s nice to have a few treats set aside that make the movie experience even more special. Putting together a bag of this Minions trail mix recipe was fun and will be a hit with the kids. I can assure you that this Minions trail mix recipe won’t only be used for the movie premiere at our house though. It’s perfect for back to school or a quick snack in the car.
The treat bags are easy to make if you are wanting to supply these as a class snack. You can snag treat bags of various sizes online, your local craft store or Walmart has several sizes on hand. Construction paper or colored printer paper cut into squares makes the fold over top and a few Minion stickers and you are in business. Simple craft that the kids can easily participate in.
