Easter Basket Ideas


Here's an easy, low-cost, very cool idea for an Artist's Easter Basket:


1) Instead of fake grass, line a basket with shredded paper.

2) Print out the free Easter coloring pages from the links shown below.

3) Roll each coloring page like a tube, and tie a ribbon around it.

4) Arrange the rolled up coloring pages around the inside of the basket.

5) Place a watercolor paint set, dry-erase markers, color pencils and/or crayons in the middle of the basket, or scatter them around in the shredded paper.

6) You could also include a tiny artist's canvas, available at most arts & crafts stores.
