I wanted to make the easter baskets this year with the kids and start a tradition for future Easters. I had limited time and resources since this was very last minute so after futzin around on the net trying to find something I decided to just freestyle this one.
I have a surplus of empty water jugs for refilling. The perfect beginning.
I used an exacto knife to get the cut started but used scissors after that.
I pierced holes in both of the top strips using a potato and ice pick.
I hole punched both sides of the handle and all around the top of the basket.
I gave the boys strips of bright yarn and a quick tutorial and forgot to pick up my camera again until the next day.
Like we color eggs easter day.
As soon as the kids finish coloring, I make egg salad sandwiches. It’s usually the only time of year we have it, which makes it taste that much better.
