Make the basket 

Hole punch the top of the container on two sides; insert a chenille stem for a handle.

Add your child's name to the basket with a permanent marker. Decorate with stickers if preferred.

Trim Easter grass into small pieces that can easily be stuffed into the yogurt container.

  • It's ok for the grass to spill over the sides as a decorative touch.

Make the Easter eggs

Dip cotton balls in glitter glue. Allow to dry.

Place the eggs on top of the Easter grass in the basket.
