How many egg hunts do your kids participate in every Easter? Ours get to do a minimum of 3 and some years it’s more like 5 or 6. Usually all of the kids simply get a plastic grocery bag to run around collecting eggs but this year I wanted to do something different. These DIY Easter bunny egg hunt bags are a fun, easy, and frugal solution. The kiddos love them and they are color-coded for each kid so there is no confusion on what bag belongs to whom. We let our kids pick out their bags and ears but feel free to skip that step. Full disclosure: it has been difficult explaining to the youngest that the bunny ears are not for wearing. If I had it to do again, I’d probably pick up an extra pair for them to play with.

When you’re on a tight budget it is easy to believe that you can’t have any fun, especially around the holidays. That’s why I love Dollar Tree so much. It allows us to still make the holidays special for our family without totally blowing our budget. If you’re looking for budget-friendly fillers for this year’s Easter baskets they are definitely your best friend. Bonus tip: when you have multiple kiddos, their multi-packs (which are still totally $1) let you fill each child’s basket for pennies!
DIY Easter Bunny Egg Hunt Bags Materials
- Pastel Tote Bags
- Foiled Bunny Ears Headbands
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Colorful Pipe Cleaners
- Assorted Googly Eyes
First, remove the tags from your tote bag and from your bunny ears.
Next, add glue to the back of your bunny ears headband and attach it to the front of your tote bag. Make sure the bottom of the headband ends are touching. This creates your bunny head.
Now pull out 2 pipe cleaners in the color of your choice.
Cut the pipe cleaners in half and place one to the side. You only need 3 pipe cleaner halves for each bag.
Then twist the pipe cleaners together in the center. You should have 3 “whiskers” on either side of the twist.
Add a dab of glue to the back of the twisted center and press firmly to the center of your bunny head.
- After the glue has cooled slightly, you may need to spread your whiskers slightly.
Next, attach a pompom to the center of your whiskers with hot glue.
Lastly, glue on your googly eyes as pictured above and you’re done.
