Crafts for Kids Easter Spring

Simple Easter Basket Craft for kids

As much as I love winter, these long and cold days have me dreaming of spring. So we created this adorable easter basket craft in preparation for warmer days! We re-used a plastic container (fruit cup, bottom of plastic bottle) to make a chick, flowers, and bunny construction paper easter basket. This easter craft for preschoolers is a fun spring project for toddler, preschool, pre-k, kindergarten, first grade, 2nd grade, and 3rd grade students.

This cute easter basket craft ideas are perfect for a spring craft or Easter craft for kids. Plus you will love that they are made using recycled materials. Try this construction paper easter basket with toddlers, preschoolers, kindergartners, grade 1, grade 2, and grade 3 students. We made our easy easter bunny and easter chick craft with recycled water bottles. We made the flower pot with a recycled fruit cup. We enjoy using recycled materials in crafts, especially during Spring as we talk about Earth Day. So pick your favorite easter craft for preschoolers and we are ready to get crafting during April!

MATERIALS easter basket kids spring craft

Construction paper easter basket

All you need to make this cute spring baset craft are a few simple materials you probably already have on hand at home.

Supplies:

  • clean recycled clear water bottle or fruit cup
  • paper shreds or Easter grass (we used yellow, white, and green)
  • construction paper
  • black permanent marker
  • Glue
  • For optional handle: pipe cleaner and hot glue

Easter craft for preschoolers

We found paper shreds at the dollar store. They are often available in paper and metallic shreds. You may also be able to find Easter grass in the seasonal sections of most stores, or you can even use left over colored tinsel.

Note: If using water bottles, an adult will need to cut off the bottom of the bottle to the desired size. I do this by poking a hole in the side with scissors, sliding one side in, and cutting all the way around.

Here are directions for each craft. To make them into a basket, simply hot glue a pipe cleaner to each side.
