“How To Make an Easter Basket” Craft Idea

Here is another craft idea from Cullen’s Abc’s. Watch the video below for her full instructions for making an Easter basket with your children. You will need white paper sacks (lunch bag size), decorative scissors, colored construction paper, and stickers or markers for decorating. For a more advanced option you can use paint and cookie cutters for stencils.

I would recommend adding some scripture quotes about Easter to the bag, especially if your using this craft at church. “He is not here, He is risen!” Luke 24:6. This would be a great Easter Sunday School craft leading up to an egg hunt at church.

You can also watch this Easter craft video directly on YouTube. Be sure to check out the rest of Cullen’s Easter Craft & Song Ideas.

    I can not thank you enough for putting together this amazing source of lessons to teach our youth about Jesus. I am overwhelmed and over joyed. I wanted to teach my daughter, whom is 6yrs old, in our home with a more lesson based approach to learning the Bible instead of jumping around from scripture to scripture. Just in time for Easter and many lessons to prepare her understanding of the sacrifice made by our Lord and why. This gives us a goal and fun ways to understand the message being taught. I love it!!! I am learning as I teach to.
    I am going to share this site with our youth teacher at the Ministry where I attend on Sunday.
    Thank You, God Bless You!

    I thank God that I stumbled upon your website. I teach at a small church with usually less than 5 students. I teach a full lesson and do crafts and actiities with them as f there were a room full! All God’s children are important!! I pay for everything that I do with my class, because there is just no extra money. This is so valueale! Thanks!! God Bless!!

    Our Wednesday night class of children made the Easter basket and talked about what Easter is really about. Instead of eggs we put a scripture in our baskets and next week we are making the resurrection eggs to add to the basket. Thanks

    Do you sell any catalogs with craft instructions in them? I like your crafts because they are simple and can be done in a short time after their lesson.

    Loved the demo of the Resurrection Easter Eggs, but kept missing the web sight to go to get the cutouts for the donkey, sword, etc. as well as the comments to each egg. I can’t wait to do this for my Sunday School class Easter Sunday. Thanks…Brenda Salyers
