DIY Easter Treat Bags Craft for Kids
Reality check, parents. Easter is less than 2 weeks away.
The holiday hit me like a freight truck when my oh-so-sweet boy reminded me that the day is soon, really soon. So how are we doing on those Easter goodies? If you’re looking for a great way to spread some Easter treats this season – family, friends, school classmates, etc., I have the DIY Easter Treats Bags for you. It’s time to jump on the Easter goody bandwagon as we get ready for yet another Easter holiday filled with crafting fun! Sweet, adorable and easy-to-make?
Yes, yes we can. These little Easter Egg Chick Treat Pouches are calling us.
DIY Easter Egg Chick Treat Pouches
has it been over a year since we last crafted with Dum Dums? Our Magic of Spring Garden was such a hit last year, I knew that we had to bring our favorite lollipop back for another spring inspired project. And with Easter so close (yes, thanks again my son for reminding me), it was time to get our materials together for Easter gifts for my son’s school friends. Ready to bring in whimsy and holiday fun into craft time? Grab the kids!
What You Will Need:
- Felt Squares – at least 6″ x 6″
- Easter Egg Template (see below)
- Yarn Needle
- Small Googly Eyes
- Orange Foam Stickers, cut into small triangles
- Dum Dums Lollipops
Print out this printable Easter Egg Template. Be sure your printer is set to print to 100% and NOT “Adjust to Fit” so that you print the right size to fit your felt squares.
Then take two felt squares and cut out eggs to the size of the template. Choose one egg to be “cracked open.” Cut a zig zag pattern across the egg, about halfway down.
Next grab your twine and yarn needle. Sew the smaller cracked open egg on top of the full size egg. This is going to be your pouch.
To get a little fancier, I tied a bow across the middle. Feel free to add decorations – felt patterns, ribbon, paint, etc. to give your eggs character!
No egg is complete without little chick friends! So I grabbed Dum Dums lollipops, the perfect treat for tucking inside the eggs. We glued on two googly eyes and a little triangle beak onto each Dum Dums. How cute are these little faces?
Then tuck your little chicks inside the eggs. You’re ready for gifting!
I have to say that I got a little choked up while making this craft. It was the first time I had pulled out my Grandmother‘s sewing kit in over a year. It’s was great to bring in her passion for sewing into this craft (because if you know me well, you know that I do NOT sew). We couldn’t be happier with the results.
These little DIY Easter Treat Bags are the perfect way to send some love this spring! By creating our own unique pouches and adding a little flair and a special treat, my kids are definitely loving spreading the sweet smiles this season! And don’t forget to grab these natural Easter egg dyes too!
