Easter basket


This was created at our local Ontario Early Years Centre.

  • small paper plate (shown is 15cm / 6" in diameter)
  • "Easter grass" (decorative straw)
  • white glue
  • easter coloured construction paper cut into egg shapes, approximately 6.5cm x 9cm (2.5" x 3.5")
  • markers, felt shapes, crayons, sparkles etc for decorating the paper eggs
  • strip of coloured construction paper for the handle (approx 2.5cm x 18cm / 1" x 7")
  • stapler

  • glue the "Easter grass" to the top of the plate
  • decorate paper eggs as desired
  • glue decorated paper eggs on top of easter grass
  • staple handle across the plate (fold the edge of the handle under the outer edge of the plate and staple) -- be sure that the staple is completely folded and there are no sharp edges to cut little hands
  • enjoy your Easter basket!
