Easter Craft: The Color Basket

The Color Basket

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Deck out this fun basket in your child's favorite color.


  • Any size or shape basket
  • Ribbon
  • Treats (all the same color)
  • Paper
  • Easter grass
  • Scissors


  1. Choose a color theme. It could be your child's favorite color or an Easter pastel.
  2. Find a basket any shape or size and fill it with Easter grass.
  3. Tie a colored bow onto the handle of the basket.
  4. Fill the basket with goodies, making sure that they are the right color. You can choose from a variety of treats: stuffed animals, toy tops, candy, chocolate bunnies, colored markers, socks, T-shirts, or pencils.
  5. Add a paper tag. You may want to cut it in the shape of a flower that coordinates with your color choice (i.e., a purple theme basket could have a tulip or lilac).


Another colorful tag option: cut out a white paper artist's palette and dab on paints -- all in shades of the specific color.
