Easter is a great holiday to get creative with kids! Whether it's coloring eggs, hunting for chocolate bunnies, or making goodie bags filled with treats that kids will love.
This year, I wanted to give my students a special treat the day before they left for spring break. The first step was creating some colorful TREAT BAG TAGS for the treat bags. I purchased some 4 x 6 clear plastic bags from Amazon and headed to Target, Trader Joes, and Michaels in search of goodies to fill the bags. I had so many ideas but take a peek below to see what I finally decided on.
1. Chocolate Mini-Mix
The first chocolatey mix is made up Hershey's kisses, York Peppermint Patties, Reese's Mini Peanut Butter Cups and Rolo caramels.
2. Bunny Hop Mix
Have you seen Annie's Organix Bunny Grahams? I found these adorable bunny crackers at Trader Joes. They come in all different flavors including chocolate, honey grahams, chocolate chip, cheddar cheese, birthday cake, lemon, and a variety pack. I added mini-marshmallows to the bags for a cottontail treat.
3. Chex Trail Mix Treat
Keeping it simple is the name of the game. For this bag, simply combine Chex Mix, Cheez-Its, Raisins, M&M's (I used pastel colors), and mini-marshmallows. Mix all together and scoop some crunchy goodness into the bags. It's that simple.
4. Gummy Worms Galore
Kids love anything gummy. I couldn't resist these colorful gummy worms for an extra special treat.
5. All the Colors of the Rainbow
I bought a box of Skittles at Target for $1. They also have Skittles Jellybeans during the Easter season that comes in many different flavors and would be a really sweet treat too!
