Easter Baskets
Kids Crafts Article by KarensVariety.com

Children can easily make their own Easter baskets and decorate them using crafts and their imagination.

For the baskets, use empty containers. Many coffee or iced tea containers are made from round cardboard. Margarine tubs, cottage cheese and sour cream containers are made from plastic. To make a cradle basket, lay a round box on its side and cut off the top third. Cardboard containers are the best choice as they are easy to paint. Be careful cutting plastic containers as the edges may be sharp.

Paint the basket or cover with paper. Add stickers, paint a face or use felt pieces for a face, or draw a design. Glue on lace, ribbon or sequins. Your child can find ideas by looking in their Craft Bag.

Cut a handle from cardboard or use a length of ribbon. Staple (with adult help) the handle to the inside of the basket.

Place coloured shredded tissue paper inside the basket.
