Easter Egg Paper Plate Handprint Basket
http://www.dltk-holidays.com/easter/meggbasket.htm

Materials:

  • printer,
  • glue,
  • scissors,
  • something to colour with
     
  • paper plate
  • paint and paintbrush (we used brown)

 

Instructions:

  • Print out two or three copies of the egg templates. 
      
  • Colour the pieces as appropriate and cut them out.

or without
  • Cut out the top half of the paper plate, leaving the rim intact.
     
  • This will likely require a parent's assistance.
     
  • Note:  Our handprints were age 4... if you have larger hands, you might want to cut off the rim and add a bigger cardboard handle that makes the basket an oval so you have a bit more room to work with.
paper plate 
  • paint the bottom of the paper plate brown, including the rim.

  • Trace the plate onto a piece of construction paper or cardboard (old cereal boxes work well).
     
  • Cut out the piece.
     
  • Glue or tape the piece onto the back of the painted plate.  This will create a narrow 'pocket' or basket.

  • Glue eggs into the basket.  Some against the back of the basket and some inside the front. 
     
  • You can slip little candies (small chocolate easter eggs would be nice) or messages inside the basket.

  • Trace handprints onto construction paper in whatever colour you prefer.
     
  • Glue or tape the handprints along the rim of the basket as a handprint handle.

Templates:

  • Close the template window after printing to return to this screen. 
        

  • Set page margins to zero if you have trouble fitting the template on one page (FILE, PAGE SETUP or FILE, PRINTER SETUP in most browsers).
