This is a classic craft that you may have even done in preschool or at church as a child. I am not sure when I first made this craft but I made more than one as a child and created dozens of paper plate Easter baskets with groups of kids over the years. Often, I forget to do these old favorites with my own kids but when my daughter was pretending to use the silverware basket from our dishwasher as a purse it brought back memories of this craft. I knew just what we were going to do. Here is how you can make your easy paper plate Easter basket.
Paper Plate Easter Baskets
Staple the two sides together and punch a hole on either side, adding ribbon for a handle. This Easter basket isn’t big enough for plastic eggs. But it is the perfect size to search for little eggs. Consequently, it can’t hold too much, so you can keep it simple for little ones. I like using them to pop little encouraging notes in leading up to Easter.
