To prepare the bags for kids, you will need to cut out ears.  If you would like a pattern to help you out with this, I have created one for you.

Cut out the pattern on the dotted lines.  Line the top of the pattern with the top of the bag and trace the ears onto the bag.  Then, cut out the ears.  Or….if your kids have pretty good scissor skills, they may be able to cut out the ears themselves.

Now that the bunny bags have ears, set out supplies and let kids get creative.  You may need to show them how the bag opens up so that they don’t put the tail on the bottom of the bag.  But, if the tail ends up on the bottom of the bag or if the bunnies have multiple tails…it’s all good.  I personally love the bunnies with five eyes 🙂

The little bags work well as party favors or goody bags.  I added some grass/filler to the bottom of the bag and placed a few filled eggs on top of that.  There you have it….a cute Easter craft for preschoolers.
