Easter Basket Craft

Easter Collage

What you need:

  • 1L or 2L milk/juice container (depending on the size you want)
  • Scissors
  • Pipe cleaner
  • Construction paper (any colors)
  • White glue

What you may want:

  • Paint (any colors)
  • Paint brush
  • Markers
  • Sparkles
  • Glitter glue
  • Stickers
  • Pompoms

With Easter being just around the corner, I thought that it would be fun to have my son make his own Easter basket.  Something that he would be proud to see the Easter Bunny filled with all of his favorite treats.  It is very simple to make and most of the materials used are ones that you may already have left over from other crafts, as well as something from your recycling bin.

  1. Clean the milk/juice container
  2. Cut the milk/juice container (if you have a pair of child safe scissors you can get your child to cut it, however it is not easy to cut so you may want to take over with a stronger pair of scissors)
  3. Trace the four sides of the container onto the construction paper
  4. Cut and glue the four pieces onto the container (if using the paint; we tried to paint directly on the container, but it did not work
  5. Decorate as you wish

If you would like to make the bunny as we did to paste on the front of your basket; you will need:

  • Foam (white, pink and black)
  • Googly eyes
  • Ribbon (any color)

Here’s how:

  1. Draw and cut the outline of a bunny on to a white piece of foam, 6 very skinny pieces of black foam, a little white square and 2 rectangular with a  curve at the top (to fit in the ears) from the pink foam
  2. Glue the 2 pink pieces of foam inside of the bunnies ears
  3. Glue the googly eyes on
  4. Take 2 white pompoms and glue them to the bunny; take 1 pink pompom and glue it on top of the white ones
  5. Glue the 6 skinny pieces of the black foam and place them just below the pompoms but still touching them to look like whiskers and place the little white foam square below just under the whiskers for the bunnies teeth
  6. Tie a piece of ribbon into a bow and place on the bunnies neck
  7. Decorate any other way you wish
