This simple Easter Egg Basket Craft Activity is so much fun and easy to make.
Easter Egg Basket Craft Activity
To create this gorgeous basket, you will need:
- coloured craft papers
- cardstock paper for the basket base
- craft glue
To make your basket, select brown cardstock paper for the basket base and a different shade of brown coloured craft paper to craft the woven pattern (strips) on it.
Trace and cut out the basket handle from cardstock paper as well.
Trace the rest of the patterns (bow, egg and egg decorating shapes) on coloured craft papers of your choice.
Cut a slit along the line inside the basket base pattern. Apply glue horizontally on the basket base. Keep small and even gap between the glue lines.
Place brown strips along the glued parts on the basket base. Keep the basket slit open.
Now apply glue on the basket base vertically and place more strips along the vertically applied glue lines.
Continue to fill the basket base with strips until it looks like a woven basket.
Use scissors to trim the extra sides of the attached strips.
Attach the handle on the top side of the crafted basket.
Cut out 3 or 4 eggs and decorate them using coloured craft paper strips and shapes.
Attach the bow on the handle and insert the paper eggs through slit of the cardstock basket. Apply glue to fix the positions of the eggs into the basket.

To increase learning, when creating the eggs, cut out different shapes and paste them on the eggs. The different shapes could also be glued on in a pattern. This will help children learn their shapes as well as learning about different patterns. Children could also cut out the first letter of their name and paste it on the front of the basket.
This basket could also be used as a tag for an Easter present. Children could cut out the first letter of the person’s name they want to give it to as a gift and paste it on the front of the basket.
