Halloween treat bags that are so easy to make

Sharing is caring!

We know that Halloween can be fun, and stressful at the same time as you aren’t quite sure what to do with the kids, or you don’t have time to make anything. So we are coming to the rescue with this idea for Halloween treat bags or Halloween snack bags that literally you can make in four steps.

Yes – that is four steps. All it takes is to buy the bags, grab the goodies to go in them, and you are off.

We know that this uses plastic bags, so it may not be for everyone. Perhaps focus on using recycled plastic, or alternatively use these biodegradable cellophane bags instead! If these aren’t for you, then check out all the others on Amazon. Don’t forget, you can download some fun Halloween treat bag toppers on the site too.

Enough of the Eco stuff – what do you actually need for this craft?

Materials

  • Bags, you decide what works, but do bear in mind what you need to be able to do with them of course
  • Black Sharpie,
  • Green Chips (avocado chip shown); you can pick anything that is green of course, and Doritos Guacamole ones work just as well!
  • Cheese Balls,
  • White Popcorn,
  • Pipe Cleaners, and finally
  • Halloween Ribbon.

Once you have everything you need, you just then need to get started on how to actually make your Halloween treat bags:

How to make your Halloween treat bags

These really are the simplest of ideas for Halloween, but really, really effective as well:

1. Using a black sharpie, draw pumpkin faces, Frankenstein faces & ghost faces onto the bags.

2. Let the ink on the baggies dry for a few minutes before filling with snacks. 

3. Once the bags are filled with snacks, tie off with a pipe cleaner.

4. Add Halloween ribbon.

And there you very much are, three different kinds of Halloween treat bags without too much work giving you.

You’ve got:

  • Ghosts, with the white popcorn, which could be replaced by small white marshmallows if you are that way inclined,
  • Frankenstein, for all those Mary Shelley (!) fans out there, using the Avocado, or Guacamole crisps (of chips if you are in the US), and finally
  • Pumpkins, using our favourite, the cheese balls. Again, you could use anything orange here if you wanted to. If you are feeling these are a little bit too un0-healthy, how about adding tangerine / satsuma segments to the pumpkin treat bag and seeing if that works for you instead?

As always with our craft posts, we also have a printable card for you to use so that you can print and go on this – for doing it easily, or even handing out instructions in class or during homeschool. Whatever works for you, works for us too, of course.

Yield: As many as you have the stuff for!
