Making Easter Baskets. {Review}

Baker Ross sent us some Easter arts & crafts to try and review. Ellie & Charlie decided on making Easter baskets first. They loves arts and crafts very much and we do a lot of craft projects after school and weekends, she couldn't wait to get stuck into these Spring Basket Kits.

The spring basket kits come in a pack of eight and each kit contains 4 assorted colours. Each kit contains the card basket template, card handle and the splint metal pins. The instruction sheet is also included.

First of all they picked the colour they wanted and then we folded the basket template over and threaded the the card tag through each slit in the basket.
"It's really looking like a proper basket now" Ellie said proudly. Charlie whizzed through his basket, haha.

This was quite easy once Ellie got the hang of it, she needed very little help from me! Next up it was time to attatch the handle to the basket using the metal split pin, I helped Ellie with this part. Charlie managed this part on his own as he is older.

We then used some 'Easter Grass' to fill the basket with. Easter grass is shredded tissue paper and is perfect for Easter baskets! It is priced at £2.45 per pack and there are four colours per pack.

Baker Ross also sent us a pack of mini glitter eggs (£1.49 for a pack of 100). We put these inside the basket. "These little eggs are so cute and SOOOOOO pretty" Ellie said excitedly.

"It looks like a little birds nest" She told me. Aww. The eggs themselves are 15mm x 18mm and are very sparkly. They are perfect for Easter or spring displays and could also be glued onto cards and pictures (using PVA glue).

Ellie said it would be fun to add some chocolate eggs to her basket, which is what we did! We used up some of the little fluffy chicks we bought last year (Baker Ross also sell these on there website along with mini chocolate eggs) and made a little display which Ellie thought was great fun!

Over all we really enjoyed making these Easter baskets. They're perfect for spring and Easter and they're also perfect for an Easter egg hunt.

Baker Ross have a very wide range of Spring and Easter arts and crafts products for children, all very reasonably priced. I can not recommend Baker Ross enough for children art supplies, they have such a huge selection!
