Stock up on crafting supplies and Easter egg decorating materials this spring! Make it easy to enjoy the holiday with your family by preparing a crafting kit in advance.

Make a basket by cutting construction paper into strips, and weaving them together for strength. Simply add a handle, a little stuffing, and display your children’s beautifully decorated eggs for the entire family to see! And, for those of you with a sweet tooth, throw in a few chocolates for decoration.
