Mom to Mom – Make Your Own Easter Basket

Today on Mom to Mom, we have a budget friendly Easter basket idea for teens.

These DIY Easter baskets are easy on the budget. Super easy if you’re needing a last second idea and it’s kid approved. Very easy to make this. So basically, what you want to do is go to the store and get the movie theater cotton candy, any kind of you think your child would like. Four boxes is all you need. Then you need some nerds on a rope so we can create a little handle. Obviously we need some grass, some fun eggs, and cut out a piece of cardboard.

Now, we’ll start to put it together. First, you want to take your hot glue gun and glue all four candy boxes together to make a square. Then you’re going to cut your cardboard piece to fit the bottom of the candy boxes, hot glue that on. Next, glue the ends of the nerd ropes to kind of make a handle, one to each side. So let it dry.

Once you’ve let it sit there for a few minutes, then you can stuff it with your Easter grass. Then take the eggs that you have, put any kind of candy in it that you like. And then you have a nice DIY Easter basket for your teens. So if you’re in a pinch or you need a more budget friendly idea, hopefully this one works out well for you. And I know your kids are going to love it.

Moms, we’d love to hear those ideas that you have with your kids. You can always post them to our Facebook page, and be sure to check out our Mom To Mom page for more tips.
