DIY Easter Egg Bag Craft for Kids

We love creating fun, seasonal bags for holidays and these Easter bags are no different! You can use it as a treat bag or a lunch bag. Even use it instead of buying Easter baskets.

This would also be cute Easter egg hunt tote bags too (for plastic or foam eggs). It would be a great craft on Easter Sunday that can be used as Easter egg hunt bags for church, or even at school, or at home.

This little bag is perfect for Easter eggs, candy, and small toys usually acquired at Easter egg hunts.  You can even use it on your egg hunt (just fill with some basket grass). Kids will love crafting this Easter basket bag and then using it later.

Directions to Make DIY Easter Egg Bag

Step 1

After gathering supplies, cut the white construction paper into a large egg shape.  Younger kids will need this completed for them which you can do ahead of time if you are doing this in a group.  Older kids will love figuring out how to create an oval from a piece of white construction paper.

Invite kids to decorate their eggs. We used crayons, but kids could also use stickers, stencils, or paint.  There is no right or wrong way to decorate an Easter egg!

Step 3

Step 3 - Easter Egg Bags - glue the decorated egg onto the brown paper lunch bag
Now it is time to glue the decorated Easter egg to the brown lunch sack…

When your child is finished decorating their egg, invite them to glue it onto the brown paper lunch bag.

Step 4

Step 4 - Easter Egg Bags - cut the brown lunch sack round at the top
Use scissors to trim excess brown paper bag at the top of the egg bag.

Cut the bag around the egg so the top of the bag is round once it is glued in place.  This makes it easier to make sure it is done easily.

Step 5

Glue a 1 inch strip of paper to the inside of the bag, creating a handle for the Easter egg bag.

Ways To Use Your Homemade Easter Egg bags

While you can use this paper Easter egg bag during the celebration to pick up eggs, you can also use it for the Easter Bunny to fill up. My mom would have us leave our Easter baskets out and that night the Easter Bunny would fill our Easter goodie bags up. Then we’d find all the eggs. Some things the “Easter Bunny” may leave is goodies like:

  • Egg-cellent décor
  • Chocolate
  • Different Colors of Candy (our favorite candy brands like Skittles, Hershey, War Heads, etc)
  • Easter Party Favors Supplies (like bunny ears, balloons, Easter pens, etc)\
  • Small packages of cookies, soda, etc.
  • Small toys
