Easter Crafts for the family

  • 14 plastic pull-apart eggs
  • Puffy paint
  • Egg cartons
  • 2 large heavy-duty paper plates
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Green craft foam
  • Twist ties
  1. First, decorate 14 plastic pull-apart eggs with puffy paint and let them dry. (Overturned egg cartons make great workstations and drying racks; just set each egg half over a carton cup bottom.)
  2. Cut the rims from the paper plates and glue them together. Glue green craft foam leaves around the ring, leaving 1 1/2 inches between them.
  3. To attach the eggs, tightly wrap twist ties (one for each egg) between the leaves around the paper plate ring, then simply close the egg halves together over the ties.

  • Shallow, handleless basket with a wide mouth
  • Clear vinyl saucer
  • Potting soil
  • Ryegrass seed
  • Water
  • Undyed hard-boiled eggs
  • Bunny cookies
  • Animal figurines
  • Chocolate eggs
  • Brown paper bag
  • Scissors
  • Rafia
  1. Fill a clear vinyl saucer with potting soil, sprinkle on a layer of ryegrass seed, cover with a very thin layer of soil, and spritz with water.
  2. Keep in a sunny window and spritz daily. It will take 10 days for the grass to reach a few inches high.
  3. Place the saucer into the basket.
  4. Top the grass with undyed hard-boiled eggs, bunny cookies, animal figurines, and chocolate bunnies.
  5. Create a tag for your basket by cutting out a leaf shape from a brown paper bag.
  6. Tie it on with a raffia bow.
