One of the easiest methods to make an Easter basket is to print out downloadable templates and carefully fold them together. When you are finished, you can easily use the crayons to make the baskets stand out. You can simply attach a piece of construction paper as a handle for your printable Easter basket.
You can also cut an empty milk carton in half and attach some construction paper to the outside. To give it a nice Easter look, you can attach a thick paper handle over the top and fill it with lots of chocolates or candies.
If you want to get really creative, take an empty soda container and cut it right above the base. Decorate the soda container with some construction paper. You can easily glue different decorative items to make your soda container look like an Easter basket. Do not forget to fill the entire bottom section with candy.
Take an empty strawberry basket that is properly cleaned out to use as an Easter basket. Although these are not that big, they make perfect gifts for kids. Have your children decorate the strawberry basket with different items to make it look festive.
You can also use an empty egg carton to make an excellent Easter basket. Take your time while cutting the base out of the egg carton. Be sure to leave enough space on the top so that you can put things inside it and decorate the outside accordingly.
If you want to do something environmentally safe for Easter, then make your basket using an old cardboard box. Make sure to clean it properly and take the scissors to cut it and make a base. Glue some construction paper on the outside along with ribbons or other decorative items to make it look nice. You can colour the box using the crayons.
