A lovely Easter craft activity!
This is one of many free activities.
Golden Carers has 1000s of activities and resources for senior care.

Object:

  • Cultural observance
  • Social opportunity

Materials:

  • Construction paper (whatever colours you have handy)
  • Colourful paper for eyes, nose and tooth (I suggest black, red and white)
  • Scissors
  • Black marker
  • Glue/hot glue
  • Shredded paper for filling
  • Things to decorate with: pencils, paint, cotton wool
  • Chocolate Easter eggs

Instructions:

  • Download baskets templates and trace onto construction paper
  • Before gluing baskets, ask participants to decorate them using coloured pencils, paint, cotton wool or any other decorations you have.
  • Glue the four sides of the baskets in the places indicated. You may have to use a paper clip after each side is glued to hold onto it long enough to dry.
  • Allow to dry for at least 10 minutes.
  • Trace bunny head, feet and feet attachments pnto construction paper
  • Use a black marker or black paper for eyes; red paper for nostril and white paper for single tooth. Decorate ears with a strip of coloured paper.
