I don’t know about all of you, but I love the Spring time. I love the warmer weather and the gorgeous colors of Spring. I have an adorable seasonal snack to share whose container is even cuter. I’m sure you’ve heard of Trail Mix before, but have you heard of Bunny Tail Mix? I hadn’t and let me tell you it is addicting! Salty and sweet, all in one delightful bite size snack.

Bunny Tail Mix

I adored the idea of making the snack, but I had to find a cute way to package it for my daughter’s daycare friends. Let’s be honest, with something called Bunny Tail Mix, it had to be extra cute. I adore using push pops as a snack option because they control the proportion size so I created Bunny Tail Mix Push Pops. I made bunny ears using white and pink foam. I hot glued the ears to tops of the push pops. The foam was the perfect material to use because it kept it’s structure once glued to the push pop.

Since the name of the mix is Bunny Tail Mix, you know I had to add a button tail to the back of the push pops. I simply hot glued a pom pom to the back of each push pop.

The finishing touch was a Bunny Tail Mix Printable, which I’m sharing with you so please feel free to print out as many as you need.
