Mini Easter basket craft
It's easy to make these mini Easter baskets with recyclables and a few basic craft supplies.
Kids can personalize their baskets to use as place markers, or to display in the classroom.
Fill the baskets with pretend "eggs" dipped in glitter to make a pretty decoration for your home or classroom.
- small yogurt or pudding containers
- Easter grass
- glitter glue
- cotton balls
- chenille stems
Make the basket
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 this is a decorative touch.
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.
Make the eggs
Dip cotton balls in glitter glue. Allow to dry.
Place eggs on top of the Easter grass in the basket.
This activity provides fine motor and creative fun for kids. The crinkly Easter grass and soft cotton balls provide unique sensory experiences.
Mini Easter baskets will be perfect as Easter decorations or as place markers on the table for Easter dinner.
You can add some chocolate eggs to the basket for an Easter treat!
