Styrofoam Cup For Easter Basket
Pipe Cleaners For The Easter Basket Handles

I watch my 3-year old granddaughter everyday and she is at the age where she thinks SHE can do everything - on her own!

I was trying to come up with a fun, easy idea to do with her for that she really COULD do pretty much on her own, without getting too frustrated.

I bought a pack of Styrofoam cups and punched holes in two sides of them and we put a pipe-cleaner through each one to make a "basket". Lillia sat at the table for several hours with markers and stickers, decorating the baskets for family and friends.

We then put Easter grass in each of them and added some candy, and then wrapped each basket in clear cellophane paper and tied them with pretty pastel ribbons.

It was a fun and very easy craft for a 3 year old, and it's a great way for her to learn to share~and to be creative. We now have an Easter basket for all who visit us for the holiday, and Lillia is proud of the fact that SHE made them!

Click N Kids would have to be one of my subscribers most popular programs, and from what they say, it is mostly because the kids have fun while they are learning. In fact they don't even realize they are learning! Click N kids are using the Looney Tune Characters now in their phonics program, which of course kids just love.
