Camping Birthday Party: Trail Mix – Free Printable

Here is the DIY Trail Mix Station from the Camping Birthday Party I wrote about earlier this this week. Since one of our party activities was going on a nature scavenger hunt, I wanted the kids to have a carry-along snack to take with them in case they got hungry.


I made the DIY trail mix station by filling pie pans and an old mess kit with simple snacks that the children could fill their own paper bags with.


The sign for the trail mix station was made using layered kraft and dark brown cardstock. I then hot glued some river rocks I purchased at Michael’s onto the bottom.


The pans were filled with different kinds of cereal, goldfish crackers, marshmallows, pretzels, peanuts and chocolate chips.

I took paper lunch sacks and printing the words “trail mix” on them for a fun detail. You can put the lunch sack into your printer and print directly onto them.


The children loved making their own bag of trail snacks, and making their own personal snack mix was an activity in itself. A great inexpensive activity which also served as decor for the Camping Birthday Party.

I’ve included the free printable download for the trail mix sign and paper bag. Just download and print onto your own cardstock and paper lunch sacks.
