Easter Eggs In A Paper Plate Basket

These Easter Eggs in a Paper Plate  Basket are a favorite, easy and economical Easter craft for preschoolers and elementary age kids. This craft is a good art project for school or for a fun craft for the kids at home.

Trivia:  Paper plates are also known as disposable plates. They are meant to be used one time and then thrown away. The first disposable or paper plates were invented in 1904.


2 Paper plates
Easter grass
Brown paint
Scissors/x-acto knife
Construction paper


To make these Easter Eggs In A Paper Plate Basket, you will need to start by putting the plates on top of each other. Cut out the inside half of the plates…it is pretty difficult with a scissors for younger kids so consider using an x-acto knife for them.

Flip the plates upside down and let the kids paint them brown to make the “basket.”

Once the plates are dried, put the paper plates together and staple around the whole thing.

Take a piece of ribbon and glue it to the top of the front.

Add a bow made from the ribbon, and stuff in some yellow Easter grass!

Cut out three eggs using colored construction paper and glue them to the inside of the basket. We finished it off by stapling the inside of the opening to make sure no white part was showing.
