 Paper craft for kids

 Coffee Filter Easter Baskets in Bloom


  • 12 yellow coffee filters*
  • 3 green coffee filters
  • 1 disposable bowl. Paper cups and tupperware containers work great too.
  • 10″ plastic coated electronic chord (mine came from my old telephone….I’ll bet you have something laying around the house that will get the job done!
  • Hot glue**

* You can dye coffee filters many ways. If you can dye eggs, you can dye coffee filters the same way. You can also just dunk them in a bowl that is 1 part acrylic paint to 9 parts water. Or use markers. Decide fir yourself. Quantity will vary, depending on the size of the base container.

**You can swap hot glue for white glue and use clothespins to clamp in place as it dries, but hot glue is easier. I’ll do a kid-friendly version of this without hot glue on Wednesday. Stay tuned.
Place one large yellow filter in the bottom and fill it with candy. Ta Da! You are ready to go!

You could also add a little accent flower if you like. Makes it seem slightly less Easter-ish. Like something you could keep out on your cadenza all year round to gather mail. Man, penny saver coupons never looked so good!

Or be traditional and fill it with eggs. Not as snazzy as chocolate and Jack Daniels but I give you props for being all traditional and stuff.

Come back on Wednesday and I’ll show you an easy, kid-friendly way to make a little tiny Easter basket like this purple one here. It’s so cute, you’ll want to eat your hand.
