Easy Kids Easter Bags

If you are looking for an easy way to make Easter bags for kids, this is for you! As you know from my previous posts, I prefer activities that are hands-on. I also love anything that strengthens fine motor skills. So, for the past 10 or so years, these easy Easter bags have been a hit for many toddlers and preschoolers!

Putting this activity together:

Pour watercolors into cups and dilute with water for desired color. With our preschoolers, we used pipettes. Needing to squeeze the tip of the pipette to transfer the watercolors to the bags is a wonderful fine motor activity. With our toddlers, we used paint brushes.

Assembling the Easter bags:

Once the bags are completely dry, open the bags up and fold the top a couple of times. Then add some filler. Some years we make our own, putting colored paper through the shredder. Other years, we use commercial Easter basket filler.

Cut colored paper into approximately 1 inch strips and staple them to the opening of the bag to make a handle.
