Easter crafts - homemade easter bunny basket

Homemade Easter Bunny Basket:

What You Need:

  • Recycled container for basket – this is a frosting tub
  • White cardstock paper
  • Cotton ball
  • Scissors, markers
  • Glue – glue dots work great

What to Do:

1. Measure your white paper around your container. With your scissors, cut the paper to fit the length around the whole container. Leave a few inches of the paper extra long for the bunny’s ears to point out long.

2. Using glue, attach the paper around the container.

3. Color a bunny face with your markers or crayons.

4. Attach a cotton ball with glue to the back of the container as bunny tail.

5. Fill with fun Easter goodies!

Easter crafts - springy dipped pretzel sticksFrosted Pretzel Sticks:

What You Need:

  • Pretzel Rods
  • Sprinkles
  • White or Pink Frosting

What To Do:

  1. Put frosting in a small mug or other similar container.  Add a tiny bit of water at a time, mixing well, to get a slightly thinner consistency.  You want the frosting to stick to the pretzel sticks but not in a blobby way.
  2. Dip the end of the pretzel rod into the frosting, coating the top third or even half of the pretzel.  Tap pretzel a few times, against inside of mug, to remove excess but make sure the pretzel is coated.
  3. Immediately shake sprinkles onto the coating and then set uncoated end in another mug, or lay across a small bowl, leaving the coating set until hardened.
  4. When coating are completely set, you can then package for giving.  To serve at your party, just arrange pretzel rods in a container, coated ends up.
