Easter-DIY: handicrafted animal bags

Go on an Easter egg hunt with the Affenzahn animals: In our Easter DIY, we show you how to make cute bags out of paper plates that are perfect for the egg hunt.

On an Easter egg hunt with the Affenzahn animals

Your favourite monkey teeth friends will help you with the Easter egg hunt! All you need are paper plates, coloured kraft paper, scissors, glue, and string. And you can make your favourite helper into an Easter bag. Which is your favourite animal from Affenzahn?

You need:

  • Two paper plates
  • Coloured kraft paper
  • Glue stick, glue (maybe hot glue)
  • String
  • Scissors
  • Stapler
  • Wood shavings or Easter straw

Choose your favourite!

First of all, I recommend that you take a close look at your favourite animal on the Affenzahn website. You need to see which colour of paper you need and how many individual parts the animal consists of.

Next, take a paper plate and cut off about a third of it with scissors. This will be the front and you can now use the plate as a template to transfer the base of the animal (for example purple for the bird or orange for the tiger) onto the kraft paper. Then draw all the other parts of the animal on the correspondingly coloured kraft paper and cut them out.


Ready is the animal face

Now it's time to glue! Use the glue stick to stick all the individual parts onto the base of your animal and bring it to life! Then glue the animal's face onto the paper plate provided.

From plate to bag

Finally, glue the two paper plates together at the outer edge so that there is a nice hollow space inside. I used hot glue to make it dry faster. You can also use normal craft glue, but then you have to let the plates dry longer. Finally, staple the string to the back of the bag and fill it with the Easter grass. And off you go on your egg hunt!
