A Sweet Easter Gift for Kids step by step
Easter is just around the corner, and it’s time to start getting ready for it! To make this Easter basket, you will need two cardboard boxes from which you will need to cut out a basket (first box) and a bunny with ears (second box).
- 2 cardboard boxes;
- cutting blade;
- paints and brush;
- hot glue gun;
- glue eyes;
- markers and pencils;
- colored paper – corrugated or tissue paper.
Start with the first cardboard box. Initially, cut all the top flaps off of it.
Next, use a cutting blade to cut the top of the front panel, about 3/5 of the total area.
Cut one side diagonally from the top of the back panel and to the top point of the front panel. Repeat on the other side.
Use the other box to cut out the bunny. To do this, first cut out a detail in the form of a rectangle, one side of which is cut in a semi-circle. Next, cut out 2 identical parts in the shape of ears and glue them on the head of the bunny from the back side.
Place the bunny in the box and glue it to the back panel.
Paint the box and the bunny with white acrylic paint. Paint the middle of the ears in orange.
Glue bunny glue eyes. Draw the orange nose.
Use black marker to draw the mouth and mustache.
Cut out two oval paws from cardboard. Paint them with white and orange acrylic paint.
Glue the paws to the basket.
Now for the fun part: you have to fill the Easter basket with candy and chocolate! We’ll show you how to beautifully wrap each treat individually.
Tie a red satin ribbon bow around the chocolate bunny.
String peas and jelly beans on wooden sticks.
Another chocolate bunny can be decorated with a small pompom by attaching it to the back as a ponytail.
Skittles box and any other sweets in a round package can be decorated with woolen threads, and on top tie a satin bow. If you decide to use this method of decorating, while wrapping the threads, fix every few turns with universal glue.
Round cookies can be decorated as a vase with violets. For this you will need tissue paper or corrugated paper, glue and scissors. And to make such a flower, cut out several details from paper in the shape of an elongated egg and glue them together in a circle.
And you can also wrap the treats with corrugated paper in the shape of a sack.
To make such a package, cut out 2 ovals of blue, and a slightly smaller oval of white. Use the white oval as a template with which to cut out the middle of one of the blue ovals.
Wrap the first blue oval halfway in clingfilm, place the M&M’s inside, and cover the paper completely with clingfilm. Glue the second oval with the center cut out on top of the first oval.
