Celebrate Trail Mix Hot

Celebrate Trail Mix

August 31st is National Trail Mix Day! 

What better way to celebrate than by putting together a tasty activity for residents. 

Trail mix is generally a high-energy and tasty treat. It’s perfect for post-workout refueling, for heading out for a walk on the trail, or just for everyday healthy snacking.

There are three great ways to celebrate the holiday. You can build a trail mix bar for residents, hand out trail mix favors at the community entrance and other gates, or make it a potluck-style event! 

Build a trail mix bar

More fun than pre-made packages is the ability to mix custom trail mixes yourself - right at a trail mix bar!

Here are some more trail mix bar ideas.


Hand out pre-mixed bags

One way to celebrate the joys of trail mix is to offer pre-made bags as gifts for residents. 

You can either hand them out at the gate in the morning or invite residents to stop by the office throughout the day to pick them up!

Having them available in the office is a great way to build stronger connections to residents as they stop by for a short chat.

You may want to make a variety of trail mixes and varieties for handing out to residents. 

***TIP*** Keep in mind your residents’ various food sensitivities and allergies. Offer appropriate substitutions that avoid cross-contamination of ingredients.

Potluck trail mix the Boy Scout way

Another way of making trail mix is for every participant to bring their own addition. 

Each ingredient is mixed together in a large bag or bowl. Individual portions are then handed out in zippered baggies to each participant.

This works best if a sign-up sheet of common ingredients is distributed ahead of time to make sure everyone brings a different ingredient. You can use a simple iPhone and Android app like ThingToBring to organize contributions.

Ideas for trail mix ingredients include: 

•A favorite cereal



•Raisins, cranberries, dried bananas, or other diced dried fruit

•M&Ms or other small chocolates

•Peanut butter chips

•Small marshmallows 

•Small crackers

•Coconut flakes

•Seeds and grains


***TIP*** If you are planning to make your own trail mix, avoid wet items. These will leave your hands sticky and make for a messy trail mix. Aim to include dry and low salt items in your trail mix.

Have a great time celebrating this fun holiday. Happy trails to you!
