Easter is right around the corner..(literally as in two days) I planned on blogging this weeks ago-but time got away from me as usual. As a little kid my Mom taught pre-school and always had fun and clever activties that she would share with my siblings and I to keep us busy over summer and easter break. One of my funnest memories was making an Easter bunny basket from an old milk plastic milk jug. I thought Parker (my 3 yr. old) would really love this because hes at that age where he will sit down and focus (well sort of..:) ) I have some photos of how to make your own and very inexpensive easter basket with your kids, or nieces and nephews. It’s a fun and memorable activity to have your little ones participate in, I had fun making this with my Parker-man…here is a little tutorial I threw together, although it’s pretty simple as you will see from the pictures..Hope everyone has a wonderful Easter! we love Easter over here at my house!
First off, start with a plastic milk jug, (I washed mine with soap and even threw it in the dish-washer to get rid of that old milk smell, cuz it ain’t nice to have that reeking in your home!)
-I cut the front of the milk jug so there would be a direct opening (for easter eggs and candy of course!:) leave the handle to the milk jug on, I accidently cut my first milk jug too much and it didn’t work out, but it doesn’t have to be even, the cotton-balls will cover the plastic.
-after it is cut, start applying those cotton-balls!
-for benny’s face I used a black sticker I had at home, you can make whiskers with black pipe cleaner or get creative and do anything you want!
-lastly we applied the eyes and mouth/nose and let benny dry!
