Materials: Egg carton, tissue paper, pipe cleaner, scissor Optional: candy or colored Easter egg, crayons or makers to decorate
Step 1: I did this part before the children came in. Cut each individual cup of the egg carton out so each child can receive one piece.
Step 2: Using a scissor (hole puncher made the hole too big) poke a hole on each side of the egg carton
Step 3: Pass each child one piece of the egg carton. Have them put the pipe cleaner the poked hole and twist it together. Repeat this with the other side.
Step 4: Optional: Have the children decorate their basket with crayons or markers
Step 5: Cut the tissue paper into 3 inch squares. Have the children place a piece of tissue paper in their basket
Step 6: Add candy (M&Ms, Skittles, Jelly beans etc…) or their Easter Egg
