Creative Fun

Hope you all have been having a great week and enjoying our Easter Story.

Again inspired by our friends at Home Start we are going to bring you a great craft to help with your Easter egg hunt.

Easter Baskets

These are simple baskets to make.

What you will need:

  • Plain or coloured paper
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Stapler
  • Stickers to decorate

Step 1

Cut paper into two squares measuring 15cm by 15cm. Place the pieces of paper on top of each other. The paper on the top will become the lining of the basket, whilst the paper on the bottom will become the outside of the basket.

Step 2

Use a ruler to draw a grid onto the top sheet to become nine even squares

Step 3

With both sheets of paper held together, fold paper into thirds (following the grid lines). Repeat to ensure a crisp fold on all grid edges.

Step 4

Use scissors to cut two lines from two opposite edges in towards the centre square of the grid. The centre square of the grid will become the base of the basket.

Step 5

Bring the edges in towards the centre to form the sides of the basket and staple into place. Repeat with other side of basket

Step 6

Cut a strip of paper and staple to the outsides of the box to form a handle.

Step 7

Decorate with stickers (use to cover staples) or whatever materials your Brisbane Kids desire.

Now, we know you will want to share your pictures, drawings, crafts and even puzzles with us. If you do please take a photo of them and post them on the Raploch Connected Facebook Group.
