Kids Craft: Print & Colour Easter Basket

I love eating chocolate. I have a fantasy of operating a chocolate boutique, à la Vianne Rocher (from the book Chocolat, written by Joanne Harris). My only foreseeable problem to this scenario would be my having to fight the overwhelming temptation, and not eat the chocolate.

While on the topic of chocolate, Easter is around the corner. To celebrate the joys that come with chocolate, such as the Easter egg hunt, I have created a print and colour Easter Basket for collecting all those tiny eggs that the big bunny has left in your garden. If you love colouring pages, then this is an activity for you.

Kids of all ages will love decorating their colour-in printable basket. It’s so easy to put together that older kids can assemble it themselves with minimal grown-up help.
