These DIY Easter Treat Jars are too cute. I bet any kid would love to make (or receive one). This post may contain affiliate links for your convenience. You can read the full disclosure here.
Did you catch the Paper Plate Easter Bunnies we made with the kids? Check them out here if you missed them and have a little one that would love to make a bunny! The kids also made these DIY treat jars (well, decorated them). They’re just as easy (even easier than the bunnies) and it’s another craft you can do with your kids for Easter. Then use the jars to add small treats or trinkets for the kiddos.
DIY Easter Treat Jars
What you need:
- Small Food Jars
- Spring Foam Flowers/Easter Foam Stickers
- Other non-adhesive Foam shaped decorations like bunnies (optional)
- Hot glue (if using non-adhesive items)
What to do:
- Let the kids decorate the jars as they desire.
- Help them hot glue ribbon around the covers.
Visual steps below of how the kids made the jars
Step 1: Hot glue non-adhesive stickers if using – we used a large foam shaped bunny. Help your kids with the hot glue.
Step 2. Remove the back from the foam stickers and add stick them around the jars.
Step 3. Tie a string around the cap (help the kids hot glue the string to keep it from falling out each time the jar is opened).
Follow the same steps above to for these bottles. For this set we used Easter Felt feet and faces and a couple of egg stickers to complete them. The kids also tied a ribbon to look like bow ties (we tied them under the “necks” (faces) rather than at the top of the covers like in the first set of jars above.
We were going to stick on these bunny tails but they ended up being a little to big for the size of the jars. You could just use a regular pom pom, if desired.
How to Use the Jars
Once the jars have been decorated, you can fill them up with treats or little trinkets for the kids to enjoy. I think it will be fun for the kids to receive treats in something they’ve created. It will show them that you appreciate their creations. I know these set of jars didn’t have any treats in them since we didn’t get around to filling them.

Our kids had fun decorating their own personal jars and love how they turned out. What do you think of this idea? Have you tried something like this with your kids before?
