Recipes For My Boys: Easter Carrot Bags

Easter Carrot Bags

So cute!  The boys are out of school this week and I wanted to start Easter fun!  I dyed some eggs..some worked, some didn't.  Some were beautiful some, well, not so.  ~smile~
I've seen those cute carrot bags filled with goldfish in Wilton decorating bags on the internet.  For me...they are way too expensive.  I decided to make the carrots on my budget using plastic storage bags.  Super easy and a whole lot cheaper.  Have fun!

Fill with Goldfish, baby carrots or orange candy.  A fun craft with your children or to add to Easter Baskets.

Easter Carrots

box(es) of whales...goldfish,  or cheese curls/puffs.  whales cost less, you get more and are same, if not less in calories and fat
quart freezer bags, however many you want to make
smaller carrots were made with sandwich bags, non-pleated
green yarn
permanent green marker

Cut bag(s) in a diagonal.  Holding a point at the bottom and cutting across to make a triangle.
Cut yarn into pieces long enough to tie bags in a knot.
Fill triangle shaped bag half way.
Pull top ends together and tie with yarn.
Color top of bag with green marker, to look like leaves.
Cut top of bag into strips.

Thank you, Sweetie! The boys used permanent markers to color the leaves, they don't smear. <3 and hugs!

I'm so glad you posted this, Debi! I had seen these on Pinterest and had planned to make them for my daughter's preschool snacks on Thursday. I couldn't find the decorator icing bags that didn't have a huge Wilton logo on them. It wasn't until I saw your post that I realized that those would be WAY too big anyway. So I'm going to use the quart bags like you did. Thank you so much!

I'm sorry for the delay of a reply! I'm glad you saw the post in time. Those bags are too expensive for this project and you are right, too big. Happy Easter! <3 and hugs!
