Materials used

Step-by-step instructions

Eggs basket

Take a compass and draw a circle with a diameter of 4 cm on cardboard.

Step 1

Cut out the circle.

Step 1-1

Draw a rectangle measuring 4 cm x 5 cm on blue ribbed paper.

Cut it out.

Step 2-2

Now draw a strip 0.5 cm wide and 15 cm long.

Step 3

Mark fifteen 1 cm sections at the bottom of the stripe as shown.

Then mark fourteen 1cm sections on the top of the strip – each mark should be between the bottom 1cm sections.

Step 4-2

Now draw some triangles following the mark. Make them equal in size.

Step 5

Take your scissors and make some cuts in a triangle shape.

This green piece will serve as the bottom for our Easter basket.

Step 6

Apply some glue around the cardboard circle and attach the green piece on top and around the circle.

Step 7

Glue the ends and attach them.

We only do the bottom part of the basket.

Step 8

Basket handle

Now cut out the green strip measuring 1 cm x 14.5 cm.

It will serve as a basket handle.

Step 9

Attach one end of the strip to the basket with a split pin. Then attach its other end to the opposite side with a split pin.

Separate the ends of the pin so that our handle stays in place.

Also, check that the handle moves freely.

Step 10-1

Take some pillowcases and put it in the basket.

We used polyester balls.

Step 11

Baby chicken

Draw three small circles on the yellow ribbed paper, then use scissors to cut them out.

Step 12-1

Fold each circle in half.

Step 13

Glue them together as shown.

Our chickens will serve as decorations for our baskets.

Step 13-1

Glue the chicken body onto the basket.

Step 14

Draw a chicken beak and feathers on orange paper.

Cut them out.

Step 15

Glue the beak and feathers onto the chick.

Step 16

Draw and cut two tiny wings on yellow ribbed paper.

Step 17

Apply some glue to the wings and attach them to the chick.

Step 18

Take the googly eyes and glue them above the chick’s beak.

Step 19

All has been done!

Step 19-1

Now you can put your favorite Easter egg in the basket.

You can also put some Easter treats inside it; it doesn’t have to be an egg.
