My kids are getting older- but that doesn't mean that we stop giving them an Easter basket. I don't think anyone gets too old for an Easter basket – they just change a little. Geezz- I received a basket from my mom every year up until last & that's just because she's not with us now. So we changed the idea of the baskets for the kids this year. Gone are the days of huge baskets filled with tons of toys & candy & gifts that would rival Christmas. We have scaled back, cut out all the extra stuff & they now get a small basket with some candy. Since they have outgrown the traditional baskets we have filled in the past, I had them help me create some new little buckets to hold their candy. It was super easy & they loved creating their own DIY Easter Bucket & making them to fit who they are.
We started with these supplies – whip cream buckets, Duck Tape in standard size neon green, standard size glitter in pink & silver, minis in black, silver, green & pink, wire hangers. We used wire cutters,
Start by adding your tape in the colors & patterns of your choice until completely covered.
Cut the hanger & poke through the sides of the bucket & make a loop to secure.
We then also added little flags of tape around the handle to make them more fun.
The kids love that they were able to help with this. I'm LOVING the fun colors.
Neon & glitter so so hot right now.
Now each of them will know exactly which bucket belongs to them on Easter morning. They can also use these as organizers in their rooms. Can never be too organized- especially with all the things kids collect. I love that these are not Easter specific & so they can be out year round- especially if we remove the handle after Easter.
That's it- a fun & easy way to re-purpose empty buckets & a great project for the kids.
