I always get my students some treats for holidays. I created this quick and easy Easter Bunny basket that the kids actually make as an art project one day and then I filled it with candy and treats later.
I bought a package of white lunch bags and traced the bunny ears on them so all they had to do was cut that part out. Then they could decorate with markers. I gave them a cotton ball for the nose and tail on the back. They then added the googly eyes and black pipe cleaner for whiskers. Fun, right!?
I bought a large bag of Easter grass to line the bottom of each one. I try to shop the day after holidays for huge discounts for the following year. I found cute Easter bubbles, erasers and pencils for the baskets the previous year. I put a few plastic eggs full of jelly beans, a mini M&Ms and chocolate bunny. I filled the baskets while they were at recess and they were so shocked to see them sitting on their desks when they got back.
