This Easter your kids will love making an Easter basket craft. With the FREE template, they can decorate eggs, bunnies, and the basket.

Let your kid’s make their own Easter basket craft using paper plates and our free template. This craft is good for all ages, just follow the directions, and in no time at all it will look like the Easter bunny already stopped by for a visit.

We used two paper plates per craft so the basket could hold stuff inside. It would look so cute with Easter Grass, candy, or little Easter Toys tucked inside of it. This craft is great to make at home or at school so everyone could take their treats home in their basket. Of course, making a usable basket is optional, you can use just one plate for simplicity. It’s up to you.

See all our Easter Activities here including our Rabbit Holding Carrot Craft and Egg Emotion Faces.

Now the reason I say this craft is good for all ages is because all of my kids (ages 1-9) enjoyed making this craft (and I did too). The template is easy to use and fun for kids to decorate.

My littlest (Little Dog, age 1) had so much fun he took a break from decorating his Easter basket to painting his sister.

Let children decorate their basket. We used paint and washi tape.

To make the basket, staple the second paper plate onto the back of the basket. If you plan on filling it up with treats you should make the staples close together to close any holes.

Print the eggs, candy, and bow template out and let children decorate them with paint, markers, crayons, or other art supplies.
