Nut-free snack mix

AKA - "throw everything in your pantry into a bowl and mix it up."

With a little inspiration from Pinterest, I came up with this nut-free snack mix for the kids to take to school/Y Neighbours for snack.  It's been a pretty big hit so far.  It's very simple, and you can easily substitute for what you have in your pantry.  Here's what's in mine:

4 cups plain popcorn
2 cups pretzel twists
2 cups Cheerios
2 cups Life cereal
1/2 cup Smarties
1/2 cup marshmallows
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup dried banana chips
1/4 cup sunflower seeds

Other ideas: bite-sized crackers (goldfish, etc), chocolate chips, craisins/dried fruit (dried pineapple would be good!), pumpkin seeds, other cereals, yogurt-covered raisins, peanuts/almonds/cashews/etc (if you're not concerned about being nut-free) - whatever you have on hand and your kids like!
