How to Make An Easter Basket?

A wonderfully colored Easter basket is very easy to make:Gather 2 different sheets of pastel colored construction paper, scissors, glue or a stapler, (optional items:shredded paper, glitter, buttons, stickers)On one piece of construction paper cut horizontal straight lines from side to side across the paper about one inch in and about 1/2 inch apart from each other. The paper should be covered from top to bottom with the slits. With the other color of construction paper cut 1/2 inch strips. Now just weave these strips in and out of the slits in the first paper. When completed, glue the ends of the strips to the first sheet of paper to hold in place. Next, fold up the sides to make a basket shape. Staple or glue in place. With a contrasting color you can make a handle for your basket and staple or glue. You can also add shredded paper to fill in the bottom. Your basket can be decorated with glitter, buttons or stickers.
