Easter is just around the corner and I am so excited! Now that our slime month is over we are getting ready for our Easter celebrations. First up are these paper plate Easter bags.

This past week my charges have been unwell. When they are sick we like to do quiet activities, ones that can be put on a tray and done in front of the T.V. if necessary. Which is precisely what we did with these.

Make sure you follow my Easter board on Pinterest for more ideas, and don’t forget to save the pin for later.

You will need:

  • Paper plate
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Stapler
  • Ribbon

Start by folding the paper plate in half, and then unfold it.

When I asked YC what Easter theme she said she wanted to do a Jesus one because it was his birthday, which I thought was sweet, although incorrect. She did however change her mind and decided to do an Easter egg.

Once they had picked their paints and I had set it up in the TV room for them I let them paint away without any input from me.

After it has dried, fold the plate back in half and stable it along the edge. Make sure that you leave an opening at the top so that your little ones can put eggs in it.

YC tried her hand at plating the ribbon together for her strap.

Finally use some ribbon to make a handle and staple it to the inside of the plate.

Now they are set to go on their Easter egg hunts.

Make sure you keep checking back for other Easter crafts and Easter egg hunt ideas.
