Has this ever happened to you?
You want to make an Easter treat for your kid to hand out to their class at school. You want to channel your inner Martha and make something fabulous. But it needs to be fairly easy since you don’t have a team helping you like Martha does.
But there’s one small catch.
It’s now the day before you need it, so it needs to be something quick. Like super quick.
Well believe me, you’re not alone. We’ve all been there, done that. That’s why we’re here and we’ve got your back!
Here’s our super fun, Martha-worthy, carrot shaped treat bags that you can whip together in no time.
So, not to worry, let’s get you started!
Quick and easy carrot shaped treat bags-
These carrot shaped treat bags will make your kid (and his classmates) super happy! They’ll also make you happy when you realize how simple they are to put together.
First, get your clear cone bags here.
There are 2 sizes to choose from:
- the smaller 6″x12″ size, perfect for small kids
- the slightly larger 7 1/2″x17″ size, good for bigger kids
Then, get your filling.
Head to you local grocery or bulk food store where you’re sure to find something orange. You can use a variety of different things for filling your carrot shaped treat bags:
- orange jelly beans
- orange coloured popcorn
- any orange wrapped candies or chocolates
- cheesy type snack (like Cheezies, Cheetos, etc.)
- orange fish shaped crackers
Next, fill your carrot shaped treat bag.
Simply fill your treat bag with your chosen filling. Try to only fill about 3/4 of the way up the bag so you have room for the carrot top or a nice bow. Tie the bag with some tinsel cord or a twist tie.
Add some ribbon.
All you need to do now is add some ribbon:
- curling ribbon curls (top center in the photo above)
- raffia ribbon bow (right side of the photo above)
- twine (bottom of the above photo)
Add a carrot top.
Make your carrot shaped treat bags even more amazing (and more carrot like) by adding a carrot top!
Take a sheet of green tissue paper and cut a square piece that measures 5″x5″. You can either cut 2 squares in one shade of green or cut 1 square in 2 different colours if you want to get a bit fancier!
Make 1/2″ cuts into the square of tissue paper like we did in the photo above. Make sure you don’t cut all the way through.
Now, roll the cut tissue fringe and tuck it into the top of your filled carrot shaped treat bag.
NOTE: Tie your bag AFTER you’ve tucked in the tissue carrot top. This will help to keep the carrot top from falling out.
Look like a hero at school the next day.
You’ll have the other parents (and even the teacher) amazed at how awesome these carrot shaped treat bags look! Only you’ll know how easy and quick these were to put together.
If your kid(s) are able to help, have them give you a hand filling them. This will make the whole thing a lot more fun and it gives them some pride in the finished project.
So, if you’re stuck on an easy Easter treat for your kid’s class, sports team or group, try making these carrot shaped treat bags!
P.S. You can also fill the carrot cone treat bags with orange basket filler and use them as Easter decorations!
