I am trying to create a backup and restore mechanism for my EBS volumes

I could easily create a mechanism for this by using

to take a snapshot of volume

ec2-create-snapshot -d $description $volume

and restore

ec2-create-volume --snapshot $snapid -z $zone

Now as per my understanding, these snapshots are still on EBS. So a better way will be to move the snapshots to S3.

So how can I move the snapshots to s3 bucket?

EBS snapshots are themselves stored in S3 so you don't need to move the snapshots at all.
