{Easter} Paper Baskets

If you are looking for a simple craft to do with your kids for Easter, look no further.  It doesn't get any easier than this one  -- paper baskets with pipe cleaner handles.

To make one of these adorable baskets, print the template onto a piece of cardstock, and have the kids cut along the solid lines.  (I have created a free down-loadable template that you can find here.)

Next, fold along the dotted lines and staple the sides of the basket in place (per below).

To finish, have the kids decorate with stickers, and add a pipe cleaner handle.  (We braided three together so that it was extra strong and pretty.)

That's it!  Add some Easter grass, and the baskets are ready to be filled with eggs.
