Take a look at these 19 easy Easter baskets your kids are sure to love!
1. Fill a football helmet for boys.
2. Use beach towels and flip-flops to make beach bunny “baskets.”
3. Repurpose a plastic wagon as a garden Easter basket.
4. Use candy boxes to make an edible basket.
You’ll need: Movie theater-size candy boxes, two Laffy Taffy or Nerd ropes, a glue gun and glue, a piece of cardboard and fake grass.
First, glue the candy boxes together as shown. Cut out a piece of cardboard that will fit the bottom of the basket and glue it to the bottom of the boxes. Hot glue one end of the Laffy Taffy rope to the middle and top of the candy box and glue the other end of the rope to the middle of the other box of candy. Do this one more time with the remaining rope. Once that’s done, fill the basket with grass and goodies!
5. Create a baking basket with baking essentials.
6. Create an Easter bunny bag out of a brown paper bag and pom poms.
Turn a boring brown paper bag into an Easter Bunny that your kids will love to take to school. Just use a brown paper bag, a colorful pom pom, gift tag (or you can make one out of any color paper), twine or string, a hot glue gun and scissors.
Prepare to cut the bag by folding it in half. Draw a diagonal line from the top outer edge of the bag down toward the folded side. This will help you achieve a nice, even “V” for the ears. Make the cut.
Fill the bag with lunch, Easter eggs, candy or any other Easter goodies, and wrap with twine or string and the gift tag. Glue on a pom pom ball as the nose, and you’ve got yourself the cutest Easter Bunny lunch bag!
