This craft themed Easter is the cutest! It’s going to make my little girl’s day. :)

I love buying art supplies for my daughter. We’re a family of artists, and it helps for her to have some of her own supplies to experiment with: sketchbooks to fill up with drawings, watercolor crayons to smear all over the easel paper, and bright markers to create bold drawings. So it felt fitting to create a craft themed Easter basket that’s full of creative goodness! I kind of wish I had made one for myself, but hopefully she’ll share. ;)

This particular Easter basket was mainly sourced from Target’s One Spot. It was one of those days when the stars aligned because it felt like every other item on their shelves was perfect for this basket. (Okay, admittedly, the “stars align” quite frequently for me at Target, but I digress.) If you don’t have a One Spot in your area, you can still pick up a lot of fun supplies via their Handmade Modern Line. (You can check out all of that creative goodness by clicking here.)

And though this basket is definitely for a little girl, you could swap out the supplies for your creative genius little boy. I’ll share how I made her Easter basket below as well as give you ideas for creating your own.

How to Make a Craft Themed Easter Basket

Step One: Gather a few supplies that will function as the theme. These will often be bigger items and will sit in the back of the basket. Here are a few ideas:

Step Two: Add in extras!

I found a couple of small pots to plant flowers in; they come with a seed packet and are a perfect spring activity. Not exactly a craft, but my daughter will LOVE this.

Maybe you could toss in a little learning activity in the basket for your kid as well.

More craft-tastic ideas:

  • Felt squares
  • Perler beads
  • Construction paper
  • Glue sticks
  • Paint
  • Iron-on transfer kits

I’m not a big fan of giving my toddler candy which probably makes me a granola mom. So admittedly, these chocolates were bought for me. Don’t tell. We’ll tuck her favorite fruit leathers in her basket. (Yep, I’m that mom, haha)

However, you can feel free to add chocolates, Easter eggs, and whatever treats you’d like to your Easter basket. :)

Step Three: Put everything in the basket.

I found a bright pink bucket that will function as the “basket” part. We’ll use it to hold our art supplies afterwards. I like finding containers that are multi-purpose. :)

I seriously can’t wait to give this to her for Easter. We will definitely be making a lot of projects Easter afternoon which will be so much fun. :)

Hope you all have a lovely {and creative} day!

    1. I admit it’s a toss-up between who is more excited about this Easter basket—my daughter or myself! :) It’s just too much fun. :) Thanks for stopping by!

  1. This is SUCH a cute idea. We don’t normally give my niece and nephew candy because they get enough from everyone else (plus, my oldest niece doesn’t like chocolate- she’s crazy!) but they DO really love crafts and anything DIY so this would be a great idea for them anytime of the year.

  2. Oh, this is a lovely idea. My daughter will go crazy over a basket like this! Thank you for sharing at The Really Crafty Link Party this week. Pinned!

  3. These are wonderful ideas. I have two grand daughters and they love nothing better than crafting with Grama.

    Thank you for sharing.

  4. This is great! I have friends over for brunch on Easter Monday (It’s a tradition ;) And I always make Little Nests for them. This year I wanted to cut down on the sweets (for a bunch of reasons) and cudgeld my brain, what to fill the nests with. This will be perfekt (adapted for grown-ups of course ;) )

  5. This is a great idea! I’m going to do this for Easter this year. Thank you for sharing your creativity!
    Happy Monday!
