If you’re looking for an easy way to transform an ordinary snack into a fun treat and activity for a classroom Easter party, you’re going to love this Easter Egg Juice Box. It only takes a couple minutes to make and in addition to disguising a plain juice box into a festive drink, it doubles as a fun activity for kids too!
I’m a big believer that you don’t have to invest a lot of time and money to show your kids you care. It’s simple acts, like turning a juice box into an Easter egg your kids can color, that lets them know you went the extra mile to brighten their day.
Whether you add it to your child’s lunchbox or after school with a snack as a surprise or bring in enough for the whole class as your contribution to the class party, the few minutes you invest and the modest supplies required to make it, make a big impact! It shows an intentional effort to make something special and your child won’t care whether that extra effort was two minutes or two hours.
Also, since I’m personally craft-challenged, my craft ideas are always beginner-level. You don’t need advanced skills or a lot of special equipment to make this Easter Egg Juice Box.
How to Make an Easter Egg Juice Box
This Easter Egg Juice Box is super simple to make. Just gather up a few simple supplies: construction paper, scissors, glue, a pencil, a juice box, and a printable Easter egg (download is available later in this post).
Step 1 – Print Easter Egg Template
Print the Easter Egg Template and cut out one per juice box. There are 8 eggs per page so print as many as you need.
Step 2 – Measure and Cut the Construction Paper
Next, place the juice box on the construction paper with the top of the box aligned with the top edge of the paper. Use a pencil to mark the paper along the bottom of the box. Cut along the line to create a strip that is the proper height to cover the juice box.
Step 3 – Cover Juice Box with Construction Paper
Wrap the paper around the juice box and secure along the seam with glue.
Step 4 – Attach Easter Egg Template
Lay the juice box so the seam that you glued is on the bottom. Glue the Easter egg template on the front.
To complete the treat, tie some crayons together with ribbon and include them with the Easter egg juice box so your child can “decorate” the egg.
