An Easter Bag to Collect Eggs at an Easter Egg Hunt
Every egg hunt I have been to has children with Easter baskets that the eggs roll out of or children with grocery bags to collect the eggs. If you make a special bag for the occasion, the bag will stay open better than a grocery bag and the eggs will stay better than a basket. Add a festive embroidered design to make it even more special.
