Non-Candy Easter Treats for the Whole Class + FREE Printable Card


With Easter approaching so quickly – we are counting down but for a different reason (hello, baby day!) if you read here often then you will know I am a sucker for all things classroom and printables! So, of course, it’s only natural I come up with something for the younger kids to bring into their classes for some classroom treats.

With Easter being a big chocolate and candy holiday for most I wanted to make sure we stayed away from both. What better to send with younger kids to school then homemade play dough! Fun and it keeps for a long time when stored properly.

Ingredients for Homemade Playdough:

  • 1 cup flour + extra flour (you will need it) if too sticky
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup salt
  • 2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • food colouring

Instructions for Playdough:

  1. In a medium-sized bowl add all dry ingredients, mix together
  2. Boil 1 cup of water, add food colouring to boiling water and add to dry ingredients
  3. Stir continuously until the mixture thickens and becomes playdough like
  4. Remove from bowl, knead for 7-10 minutes

What’s needed to make treat bags:

  • Medium Craft bags
  • Bunny cookie cutter
  • Homemade Playdough


  1. Cut out your playdough bunnies, and place in craft bags
  2. Cut out your printable card, fold down your bag as needed and staple your card to the top
  3. all done, super easy and super cute!

I volunteered at the beginning of the school year to make Playdough for Justin’s junior kindergarten class, so I had to make some anyway, it was a perfect time, and all worked out so well. We even made extra to keep on hand at home; my kids love homemade Playdough!

Justin and Jackson who are four and six are looking forward to gifting these to their classroom friends.
