Easter Trail Mix Snack

Easter is the best day of the year!! Easter trail mix is a great way to get kids of all ages talking about Jesus. I love teaching my kids about what Jesus did for them when he died on the cross and rose again. One thing I started doing a few years ago was an Easter snack for them. This is not the best picture, but real life. I was busy and we used paper plates! It was still just as fun.

It's easy to do this with kids, and I love that my littles through teens want to participate. I don't mix these items up, but I still call it an Easter trail mix, but perhaps it should be snack.

You need: cocoa powder

stick pretzels or carrot sticks

craisins or raisins

round cookie or apple cut in a round shape


green gumdrop or green grape


a treat such as chocolate candy

Cocoa powder:

The first thing they taste is cocoa powder which looks dirty and tastes bitter and I tell them it represents sin. We read Romans 3:23 while they taste it.

Stick pretzels:

Then we read Romans 6:23. We eat the pretzels which I let them form into a cross and we read Romans 5:8 while they eat the pretzels.


We read Matthew 26:28, eat the craisins, and talk about the blood of Jesus.

Cookie or apple slice:

The next thing they eat is the cookie which represents the stone that was rolled away and we read 1 Corinthians 15:4.


We eat the marshmallow and talk about how Jesus is the only one who can wash away our sins and read Ephesians 2:8-9.

Green gumdrop or grape:

We eat the green gumdrop and talk about how to grow in our faith.


Then I give them a big pile of fish. We talk about Matthew 28:19-20 and Matthew 4:19. I tell them there are many people who need to know Jesus, so this is the biggest pile on their plate.


The last thing is a treat of some sort. This year was chocolate candies and we talked about how good God is. The kids look forward to this each year, and I do as well!

I hope that your family enjoys this!
