You will need
Free printable pdf
Metal ruler
Cutting mat
Paper knife or scissors
Blunt knife
Double sided tape
Easter eggs for hunting

Chick-Basket-5

Print out the free printable pdf. For best results print on heavy white stock but plain paper will also work. Cut out all the separate parts using scissors or a sharp knife, metal ruler and cutting mat. Fold along the dotted lines – hint: to get a really crisp, clean fold score the line first by running a blunt knife along it with a ruler before you fold it.

Chick-Basket-3

Fold the basket piece together first and stick together with double sided tape. Then attach the wings, head and handle.

Fill with your favourite small Easter eggs – yum! Or hide them and let the kids go on an egg hunt to fill it up.
