Brady's class is having a Thanksgiving party on Tuesday afternoon...I need to bring something for the kids to eat...any ideas?  Doesn't really have to be in the Thanksgiving theme but I'd like it to be.

These are special needs medically fragile children ages 3-4.  There are a total of 8 children and 4 teachers.  No allergies in either class.

Thanks ladies!

I have tried that chex mix in the post above and its sooo good. I want to make me some now lol applesauce is good idea though maybe buy different colored spoons to go with them. You can always make a fruit bowl or punch.
