Last year my Eldest was eating her breakfast and thinking about dolls. "Mommy! What if we used the empty yogurt cups and made Easter baskets for our dolls?" And that's how this project got started and is turning into a tradition for our family.
Easter grass (or tissue paper)* Large nail or screw (to make the hole for the pipe cleaner handle)
* Cuticle scissors or seam ripper
* Adult supervision/assistance required
1) Once you are done eating your yogurt, clean out the container and remove the wrapper from the yogurt cup using cuticle scissors or a seam ripper.
Your doll Easter basket is ready for the Easter bunny!!
If you want to make smaller baskets for dolls like the WellieWishers, you can use empty applesauce or fruit cup containers. They are a thicker plastic though, so please be careful when poking holes for the handles.
Bonus - Once the Easter season is over, you can easily remove all/most of the decorative items and save for another project. The yogurt cups can be recycled!
We hope you enjoyed our Easter basket project!
