Here's what we did today in my class.
It's a quick and easy Easter Basket.
First you need a square piece of construction paper.
I used some 8 x 8 inch that we had in the stock room,
I also need to apologize at the terrible quality of my photos. I discovered later that there was a smudge on the lens of my iphone. So all the photos have that mystic, soft focus look. - oops.
Anyway first I folded the paper in thirds and creased it.
Then I showed the kids how to use a crayon and a ruler to draw the lines like in the photo below.
And then I showed them how to cut on the lines, down to the fold.
Then I showed them how to cut the outer flaps into smaller strips like in the photo.
It was super easy. Then I got the kids to stick an easter sticker on the centre piece, like in the photo above.
Then I assembled the baskets using a stapler.
Check out the instructions in the photo below.
Once it was assembled, there were these pieces sticking up, like in the photo below.
So I trimmed them off, like in the photo above, and then I added the handle and voila!
Ready to find eggs tomorrow.
