This quick treat bag is easy enough for grade schoolers. Use it for your Sunday School Class and talk about the symbolism of the Easter Lily. Or, wouldn't Grandma love this filled with marshmallow peeps and jelly beans from her favorite little Easter bunnies?
Approximate Time: 10 minutes
*I found a big box of white lunch bags at a warehouse store for about $11. They are very handy for all kinds of craft projects, in addition to lunch!
Add name or phrase such as "He is risen!" along bottom of bag with foam letters or a gold pen.
Cut top of lunch bag as shown. Cuts should be about 2 1/2 inches long.
Fill bag with Easter grass and treats as desired.
Carefully gather the top of the bag, just under the cuts, arranging the petals neatly. If some petals seem too wide, just cut down the middle.
Tie bag with dark green ribbon in a bow. A coordinating ribbon may also be added.
Color center of lily in with yellow pen, adding 2 or 3 yellow streaks to each petal.
When marker is dry, curl ends of petals by wrapping around a pencil.
Add stickers such as a butterfly to one petal, if desired.
