6 adorable Easter baskets for kids you can make at home
Sure, store-bought Easter baskets are easy, but making a one-of-a-kind Easter basket at home might be even easier (and cheaper) thanks to these tutorials. If your kids are still in the Easter-bunny-loving age bracket of preschool or elementary school, they'll get a kick out of waking up in the morning to find a special Easter basket made just for them.
5. Green grass Easter basket
Make this basket one week before Easter, and you'll be rewarded with living Easter grass!
What you'll need:
half-gallon cardboard milk or juice carton, cut in half
rye grass seed
large freezer bag
What you'll do:
Paint the outside of the carton as desired.
Make a handle with poster board and attach with brads.
Add potting soil until the basket is about three-quarters full.
Sprinkle plenty of grass seed over the soil and water.
Place the basket into the baggie and place on a sunny window sill.
Keep the soil moist, but don't drench it.
When the grass begins to sprout (about two to three days), remove the basket from the baggie, add treats and enjoy. After Easter, plant the grass outdoors.
