Use brightly colored construction paper to make baskets by cutting the paper into triangle shapes. Roll the triangles into cone shaped baskets and glue or tape together, finish by adding a strip of construction paper to make a handle. Fill the basket with left over Easter grass, then add fresh flowers the children pick (even dandelions will do) or if you live in a cold climate, with no fresh flowers yet, cut pictures of flowers from magazines or gardening catalogs and glue them to toothpicks and arrange in the basket. Then have the child choose an elderly friend or relative to give their basket to.
