Easter is just around the corner and definitely the next big “crafting” holiday. We’ve been wanting to make something to leave for our neighbors and figured Easter was as good a time as any! We partnered with Elmer’s to create these fun DIY paper baskets. Check out their Dream! Make! Create! site with Scholastic Parent & Child for all kinds of fun Easter activities!

DIY Paper baskets (with printable)All you need is this printable, paper and Elmers glue. Just the good old school glue works great for these as long as you give them time to dry. It holds up really well! Print out the printable and cut along the outside solid line.
