EASTER TREATS YOUR CHILDREN CAN MAKE

Here are some cute and easy Easter treats my grandsons made for their neighbors.

Last week my husband and I traveled to NC to visit our 2 grandsons that live there.  They have several children in their neighborhood that they play with,  so we decided to make some Easter treats for them. 

I had baked some cookies to take to my grandsons.  They wanted to share these also, so they helped arrange a cookie tray for their friends.  They looked so proud as everyone took a cookie.Easter, treats, candy bags, cupcakes

 

They filled plastic eggs with candy to have an Easter egg hunt for their friends.  Easter treats, egg hunt

The next morning, we set up a table with cupcakes and some Easter candies to create these cute little treat bags.  The boys watched me do one and then they made some for their friends.  One of the bags was as heavy as a trick-or-treat bag! Easter, treats, candy bagseaster treats, cookie bagsEaster treatseaster treats, candy bags

The 3 year old decided  he can work better if he sits in the middle of everything.  It is easier to sample the candy that way also. They were so excited to be working in the kitchen.

Place glass in a large, clear treat bag, add a handful of candy, and tie with a colored ribbon.  

No two  bags ever look the same and even  though they are such a simple thing,  all of the kids enjoyed the Easter treat bags.  

I used this recipe for my decorated sugar cookies.  HERE

Happy Easter to all!
