Happy Tuesday Tea, Friends!
With Easter just around the corner, I thought a sweet little Spring treat would be great to share.
A few year’s ago when my mom taught a small girls class at church, she would always have these great craft ideas & activities to do with them I distinctly remember one of those ideas & that’s what I’ll be sharing with you today – Carrot Snack Bags!
Noo…not like the carrots in your lunch bag, I’m talking about candy filled treats!
What you’ll need:
–Orange Sixlets. (I snagged mine at Party City in the “Candy by Color” aisle for $5.99 – and they’re Gluten Free!!)
-Orange triangle sacks (also from Party City for a whole 99 cents)
–Cute Ribbon of your choice. (Purchased mine on sale from Hobby Lobby, also for 99 cents)
–Card stock + Hole Punch for Tags (optional)
The process is simple & super cost efficient. For less than $10 you’ve got a great activity to do with the kids AND a tasty snack to send in lunch boxes, handout to teachers/coworkers, or just additional treat for your Easter Baskets!
Open sacks wide, cuffed in your hand, & pour Sixlets (or candy/food of choice) about 2/3 full.
You want to make sure not to overfill or it will be hard to tie the top with ribbon.
Twist the bag from the top & secure with ribbon.
I found these great “Happy Easter” tags with a carrot on them from Lolly Jane. They’re perfect for these sweet carrot snacks. Visit her website to learn more about the printable!
Aren’t they great for these treats? I thought they’d be nice with a sweet note or scripture handwritten on them too!
Make sure to visit LollyJane for all the information – I definitely just found the tags on Pinterest!
Don’t like chocolate or candy?! No problem….
My favorite part of these quick & inexpensive snacks is that it’s a great activity to with kids & they’re completely customizable. From candy to snack crackers, these little carrot bags are great for lunch box surprises, Easter baskets, school parties, teacher/co-worker treats, or just a word of an encouragement to someone who needs it!
I hope you’re having a great week & I’m thankful you dropped in!
Frankly my dear…Spring is here!
