Simple Easter Basket

We made very simple Easter baskets this year out of plastic bowls. L and A each chose a coloured bowl, and I used a single hole punch to make a hole on either side of it. Through the holes we threaded a pipe cleaner, twisting it around on itself at each side to secure it to the bowl. The pipe cleaner was the handle of the basket.

A chose to decorate her basket on the inside, adding lots of small Easter stickers around the inside, as well as some stickers on the base. L decided to put most of her stickers on the outside of her basket, with just a single bunny on the inside base. Then they were ready for the egg hunt.

The kids ran around finding the little eggs hidden by the Easter Bunny and adding them to their baskets. The single moveable handle meant that the baskets could become unbalanced easily if the eggs were on one side of the bowl, so they had to be careful not to tip the baskets up and spill the eggs. L collected more eggs than A, so Big L helped the kids to count all of the eggs and divide them equally between them. Baby T only found two eggs, but we thought that was plenty for such a little boy. He did enjoy eating one of them very much, once I took the foil off for him.
