Activities & Lessons
The 100th day of school can feel like a big milestone—both for students and teachers. Highlight this special day with a celebratory snack like trail mix. We have a few recipe ideas for you to create your own trail mix, including a nut-free version. If your students are remote, this is a fun activity to do at home, too.
Make Your Own 100th Day of School Snack Mix
Download our recipes below to get a list of suggested ingredients for each trail mix. These can be adjusted to foods you like or have available. Some of our favorites include sunflower seeds, pretzels, yogurt covered raisins, and popcorn! Note that when using food in an activity, it's always a good idea to make a list of ingredients and nutrition label(s) available. This way, those with allergies, food sensitivities, or other conditions like diabetes will know what the snack contains.
One way to make this activity more fun for the whole class is to use a printable snack mat to create your trail mix. Print out one mat for each person and line up bowls filled with ingredients on a large surface in your classroom. Provide spoons or tongs for handling. Have students count out ten of each ingredient—for a total of 100—and place them in the designated circle. Once you have counted out all your ingredients, mix them up in a sandwich bag and enjoy!
Check out our printable snack mats—both the nut and nut-free version—to use with your classroom. If you are looking for even more snack ideas, don't miss our 100th Day of School Snack ideas.
With the 100th day of school just around the corner, building your own snack mix can be a fun way to mark the day with your students. Enjoy this activity with the whole classroom!
