Easter is hopping up on me this year. I have been stressed with planning my son's confirmation and keeping up with the family. I didn't realize that we are only a few weeks from Easter Sunday until today. I probably should have realized it, because of Lent. . .
Yes, it's been one of those weeks...
This "cross" basket is an easy craft that works for all ages. My children brought home a similar version from church last year so I used their simple idea for craft time this week. We used simple brown paper lunch bags, but you can find printed and colored bags in stores. The children also decorated their bags with stickers, markers, and crayons. Get creative!
Here's how we cut our baskets:
First, draw a cross on one flat bag. Have the cross fill the entire length and make it wide enough so it will not tear easy.
Carefully, cut out the cross pattern. Remember, you don't want to cut all the edges.
Decorate your bags.
Open the basket and fill with grass, eggs, or candy.
