Cheap basket ideas?

We've been very busy with a sick family member who just passed so now a funeral as well. I don't have time or money to give DD the fun Sunday I had planned. She was given a plain little basket. Are there any quick household things I can use to make it festive? We have a decent sized craft box.

  • Pipe cleaners, stickers, Maybe just get a bunch of stuff out and have her decorate the basket as a fun distracting project.

  • Do you have any Christmas ribbon? You can curl a lot of it and tie it around the basket in bunches. Or you can go buy some fake flowers at the dollar store and hot glue those on.

  • What kind of stuff can I fill it with besides eggs and stickers?

  • I always put things like bubbles, coloring books, story books, little notepads, markers, balloons, leftover birthday party favors, frisbees.... good luck, and have a Happy Easter!
