Little Easter bag project

Today I am putting together a little Easter project for Popette and her two cousins who are coming over Easter Saturday for a BBQ. I am organising a little Easter Egg hunt, which will be Popette's first...we haven't celebrated Easter the last two years as we thought she was too young...she didn't even try chocolate until she turned 2...I know I'm a terrible Mummy! Well I've got to enjoy it before I don't have any left for myself!

To collect the Easter eggs, I thought I'd get them to make a personalised Easter egg bag using a plain brown sandwich bag...saves you buying the specialty bags that shops are selling.

I have created a blank bunny face which the kids can decorate to their liking...I'm giving them some pom-poms to use for the nose, pipe cleaners for the whiskers, boggle eyes, coloured pencils etc.

Here is a quick example of a bag I created, it's very plain,
but you can decorate it as much or as little as you like :-)

If you would like to create a "bunny" bag, here is a list of what you need:

All you need is:

  • Brown sandwich bag
  • Sheet of White A4 paper
  • Pencil
  • Black marker
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Pom-poms
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Stick-on boggle eyes
  • Coloured pencils

Plus anything else your kids would like to use to decorate their bags: i.e. cotton wool balls, glitter, stickers, coloured paper, crayons, textas etc.

You can find the template I created here.


  1. That's a brilliant idea Julie. Good on you. Happy Easter.
