Paper Bag Crafts: Easter Hunt Bags

As Easter approaches, it’s time to get planning that annual Easter egg hunt for the family. Start gathering the eggs in their buckets full and prepare for how the day’s events will go down. Children love Easter egg hunts and it’s always a time of great excitement and joy.

If you’d like some additional ideas for your Easter weekend, why not spend the Saturday getting creative and then you can use all your creations on the Sunday.

One great thing that you can make that will be beneficial to your planning of the event it’s self is to get everyone in gear to decorate their own Easter egg hunt bags. This can be a lot of fun, and can give everyone a little sense of pride as they whisk their bags around the next day and fill them with delicious treats.

Getting Started

When it comes to arts and crafts with the kids, one of the great things is that you don’t need to spend lots on materials. Most of the things you need will be lying around the house already and can you can often make absolutely anything work to your advantage.

What You’ll Need

That being said, there are a couple of things that would make things much easier:

  • Plain Paper Bags
  • Coloured Paper
  • Pens
  • Other bits you may have lying around – Glitter, googly eyes etc.

If you don’t have any paper bags around the house, you can always make your own or purchase some from a trusty paper bag company.

What To Do

This bit is really down to you and the people you are decorating with. Here are some examples of things you can try for, but don’t feel like you have to make anything in particular. Simply having a bit of fun and not aiming for anything in particular can be really fun and the results can be really great.

I hope those bags have inspired you to get creative this easter. Remember it’s all about having fun, don’t worry about getting your bags looking like they were made in a factory!

If you need to purchase paper bags, head over to, they sell a wide range of paper bags and will definitely have something that you can use for your Easter projects as well as all future projects too.
