Here’s an adorable Easter craft for kids to make before an egg hunt! Although I was in charge of the Bunny Bags, Mary Poppins ended up doing ALL of them with the kids! Engineer was sick at the beginning of the week, so I’d missed some days.

Bunny Bags are a colorful Easter craft for kids to make
Materials (affiliate links below – thanks for your support)
Colorful patterned scrapbook paper – mine was leftover I already had on hand
Brown gift bags with handles
Pipe Cleaners from our usual stash
1. Cut scrapbook paper for the bunny’s face, eyes, nose, ears, and feet.
2. Have child choose a piece of paper for the bunny’s face, and let her glue it to the front of the gift bag.
3. Have child glue ears to the top inside part of the bag. This works best when the bag is laying face down.
4. While the face and ears are drying, child can draw the bunny’s eyes.
5. The child can then glue the bunny’s eyes to the front of the bag.
6. Help the child glue down pipe cleaners for the bunny’s whiskers. If regular glue doesn’t work, use a glue gun.
7. Affix the nose on top once the pipe cleaners are dried.
8. Add the bunny’s feet to the bottom of the Easter bag.

I think the Bunny Bags turned out so well! The students really enjoyed using them during our school’s annual Easter egg hunt! The large handled bags made it easy to hold all of their Easter goodies.
While incredibly cute, I think next year we’ll do it a little differently. Because of the weird weather, and because Mary Poppins was on her own a few days, it was a rushed project. With this age group (4 and 5 year olds), it’s an Easter craft for kids to do one-on-one with an adult. So I’ll definitely be trying it again, just when the time isn’t so limited!
Do you have an Easter craft for kids to do this spring? What are they using during their Easter egg hunts?
