5 Awesome Ideas to Make Your Own Easter Treat Bags

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.

Easy Easter Bunny Craft Project for Kids

How did a rabbit become a symbol of Easter? A long time ago, the Easter hare (Oschter Haws) started as a folktale. As the story goes, the Easter hare would lay colorful eggs in nests for children on Easter Sunday. This tradition dates back to the 1600s in Germany. Rabbits are small mammals with whiskers, long ears, and fluffy, white tails. Some species have ears that can grow to be up to 26 inches long, from tip to tip, giving them excellent hearing. Students will love this activity pack all about rabbits and making an adorable Easter Bunny craft project.
