Winnie the Pooh Snack Mix #disneywinnie

This is a sponsored post for Blueprint Social and their client.  All opinions are honest and are my own.
Winnie the Pooh has been a part of my life as long as I can remember. As a baby, I had a mobile with all the main characters on it and a stuffed Pooh Bear that I loved to cuddle with.  When I was a kid, my brother and I always watched The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh on the Disney Channel before school.  There was something so soothing about the narrator's voice and the sweet, simple stories of Pooh and his friends.


You can imagine how thrilled I was to learn that The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh was released on DVD on August 27th!  It's available on Blu-Ray and HD Digital.  Thanks so much to the people at Disney for sending our family a free review copy for inspiration for this project. All opinions are honest and are my own.


Last week, the kids and I made a simple snack to enjoy while watching this sweet show. They truly enjoyed the whole experience and were excited that it was something I watched as a kid too!


First we assembled our ingredients.  I had bear-shaped graham crackers, honey-roasted peanuts (Pooh Bear loves hunny!), marshmallows, and several different colors of candies.  The kids said the marshmallows reminded them of the clouds in the Pooh stories. We picked out the pink, purple, red, brown, and light blue M&Ms to represent Piglet, Eeyore, Pooh's red shirt, Owl, and Christopher Robin's blue shorts.  The Reese's Pieces represented orange Tigger, yellow Rabbit, and brown Kanga and Roo.


Next, we poured everything into a bowl and stirred it up well.  The kids were already talking about what pieces they were going to eat first!


Finally, we all settled down around the tv and enjoyed this timeless adventure.  Even my old Winnie the Pooh doll got to join in on the fun!

  8. Sarah, the children are so darling and I know they had a blast making such a delicious snack. My family has always loved Winnie the Pooh as well. Now they are grown with families of their own. Love your post.

  9. Hi Sarah

    Wow - you are a wonder Mum. This is absolutely brilliant!

    I must show my kids (teenagers) your blog.... No, on second thoughts maybe not, they will claim they have had a disadvantaged upbringing!
