Easter buckets

What you need:

  1. An empty tin e.g Nan or Ricoffy
  2. Wrapping paper
  3. White card
  4. Neon twisters (or crayons) & a black marker
  5. 2 different coloured pipe cleaners
  6. Craft Glue
  7. Scissors


  1. Drill two holes either side of your tin - if you don’t have access to a drill then hammer a nail through each side to make a small hole.
  2. Measure your tin’s width & length and cut your wrapping paper to fit.  Glue your wrapping paper to tin.
  3. Draw an egg shape on card, cut out & use as a stencil to draw your eggs on your white card.  Colour these in with your twisters & cut out.
  4. Cut out a white square of card and write the label for your tin - colour in with twisters.
  5. Glue your label & eggs to your tin.
  6. Twist your pipe cleaners around each other to make your handle.
  7. Thread them through the small holes on the side of the tin (take a pencil and pierce through the wrapping paper if the holes are covered).
  8. You can use a small washer to go over the ends of your pipe cleaners on the inside of the tin & then wrap the pipe cleaners around the washer to give extra strength - otherwise stick the ends of pipe cleaner down with some tape on the inside of tin.
  9. Add some coloured tissue or shredded paper inside your tin & fill with Easter eggs!  Or get your buckets ready for an Easter Sunday egg hunt!
