Find out about the origins of the Easter basket. Why is the egg a symbol of birth, life, and hope? What spring festivals, in countries around the world, include the egg in their celebrations? Here's one way to make your own egg basket.


On construction paper, draw a large egg with Crayola® Colored Pencils. Cut it out with Crayola® Scissors. Trace and cut out a second identical egg.


Using colored pencils, decorate one side of each egg. Use your imagination to create spring or Easter patterns. Add Crayola® Glitter Glue to enhance your designs. Dry.


Cut or fold a paper lunch bag to about half its size for a basket, or use it full size to carry more items. Attach the decorated paper eggs to the front and back of the bag using Crayola® Glue Sticks.


To create a handle, punch a hole on either side of the bag and insert a chenille stick. Twist the ends to secure the handle.
