Instruction for Horse Goodie Bag DIY

Follow these simple steps to create your own adorable horse birthday party treat bags.

Step 1: Prepare your materials

Is this a girl’s birthday party or for boys? Do you have a color theme? Depending on your guest choose fitting colored papers.
Either print out our horse templates or draw them later by hand.

Step 2: Draw shapes

Take your colored sheets and draw the outlines of your needed shapes as seen in the picture. For the eyes, I used my circular glue stick to trace around them. For smaller children prepare that step in advance and let them start with step 3.
Those who use our horse printables can skip this step!

Step 3: Cut your shapes

After you or your children draw the needed shapes on paper, cardboard, or if you simply print out our horse cutouts, it is time to cut them.

Step 4: Color and glue your shapes

In case you used white paper for this craft, make sure to color the small pieces in the desired color first. Then take your glue stick and attach it to your lunch bag.

Step 5: Add finishing touches

In this final step take a marker and add finishing touches. It is time to draw the eyes, the nose, and the hairlines.
This step can be skipped while using the horse printouts.

DIY Horse Bag Tips

  • I can only advise you to make different colored horse goody bags for each gender. It was a full success. For boys, I chose brown horses with green or blue. For the girls on the other hand I decided on white horses with pink bows.
    We also included a boy version in the printables for you!
diffrent decoration options
  • Since bows are a girl thing you can also use other things to add some finishing touches to your party bag. Simply substitute with pom-poms or use a shape puncher.

I have to say we simply loved this fun DIY horse birthday party project. We had a fun afternoon making these adorable horse treat bags.

We filled them up with some of those cool horse birthday party favors. It was a full success our friends loved them!

I recommend this DIY horse birthday party craft for children 3 and up.

Smaller toddlers will need some assistance. Simply draw the shapes prior and let them just cut and glue.
It is a wonderful opportunity for them to work on their motor skills.

We also attached some horse coloring pages in case this craft is too difficult for them!

My children not only enjoyed making their very own DIY horse bags. They also loved handing them out and seeing the smiles on their friend’s faces.

By the way, these horse party bags are a wonderful idea for drive-through birthday parties or to hand out in school as well!
