Eric Carle Treat Bags

Caden's Kindergarten class is heading to a special play at the Pantages Theater of the characters of Eric Carle (The Author of The Very Hungry Caterpillar).   I got inspired to do something fun for the kids, so I hit Pinterest and saw a birthday party for an Eric Carle theme.  I found an idea to put out treats and name them something from on of his books (found this idea on Catch My Party).  So instead of doing a large bowl that people can grab out of like at a party I decided to do individual treat bags!  I know I'm brilliant .. lol just joking!  I went on to Google to find the images and then add the words.  I started to print on card stock but printer hated the paper so I switched to white copier paper that I then cut and attached to the card stock!

Here are the images I found on Google with the wording
You can copy and paste in word to make your own treat bags!
Very Hungry Caterpillar
Sweet Fruit Slices

The Greedy Python 
Gummies

Baby Bear Gummies

This was a simple one to make, I hit up the bulk section of my Winco (but you can always hit the candy isle and take them out of the bags).



What you need:
Fruit Slices (I used Watermelon slices)
Gummy Bears
Gummy Worms
Plastic Bags
Ribbon (to tie up bags)
Paper (to print your cards - You can use card stock if your printer likes it)
Printer (to of course print the cards)


Fill the plastic bag with the candy that coordinates with the card (Fruit Slices / Watermelon Slices for Hungry Caterpillar - Gummy Worms for Greedy Python - Gummy Bears for Baby Bear).  Tie up with a ribbon and add your card.  Hand out as party favors or like I'm doing for the kids classmates.





I hope you enjoy this would be fun to do as thank you bags for a Eric Carle themed birthday party or heck just like I did for your kids classroom.
