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.

Step 2

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!

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

Step 4

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.

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