Get ready for Easter with these basket craft ideas from momstown!
Using a few simple materials, your child can create this Easter basket craft with lots of texture and colour!
Start by decorating Easter eggs – these were paint-stamped on and decorated with markers. Decorate enough to 'fill' a basket!
Cut strips of brown construction paper into skinny rectangles, and glue them on in layers to create the texture of the woven 'basket' – no matter which way they're glued on, they will look great!
Put the eggs in the basket by gluing them on top, and finish it off with a pipe cleaner handle.
Great cutting practice and lots of creativity in this simple craft!
Or try this cute as a bunny basket idea – it's a manilla envelope cut halfway, with 'ears'.
Add pink middles to the ears and glue the ears together like a handle.
Decorate the outside of the envelope with markers, and add easter grass and foam easter eggs!
