Why buy an Easter basket? If you have craft sticks and a glue gun, you can make your own craft stick Easter basket.

My daughter must be getting just as excited for the spring as I am. She has been laying out picnics on our living room floor for the past couple of weeks. I was impressed when she made herself a picnic basket out of a tissue box and pipe cleaners to carrying her food in. I was very proud of her for being so inventive.

My daughter loves to play with tape. We have many decorative rolls of masking tape & washi tape and Mai loves to get her hands on them.

Unfortunately, she likes to tape it to our walls. We needed to find a fun project for her so that she could use that tape in a better place. Easter is on its way & we decided to make some cute little Easter baskets. Our tape would be perfect for creating the weaving pattern.

What you will need:

Brown paper lunch bag

Washi tape or decorative tape

Pipe cleaners

Directions:

Roll the top of a brown paper bag down.

Tear off a bunch of pieces of tape to make it easier to grab.

Take the pieces of tape & press them onto the bag in a diagonal criss-cross pattern.

We stuffed our baskets with Easter grass & then stuffed a few Easter eggs with jelly beans to go into them.
