Making Trail Mix
This work comes from my friend Sarah- a phenomenal Montessori teacher!
I found these containers at Cost Plus World Market. They are perfect and a miniature replica of the bulk food containers, found at the grocery stores, only $2.00, and even come with a tiny scoop!
I put mini chocolate chips, dried cranberries, and cheerios in them- you can mix it up a you please and gear to your classroom's favorites and/or allergies.
I put numbered labels on the tops of the containers and they scoop that amount of each one into their cup! Each child is allowed to do this one time daily ensuring we have enough for everyone and we don't run out too quickly.
