Here's how you make it...

1. Cut out a basket shape from construction paper.

4. Starting at the bottom, weave the paper strips through the slits in your basket, and glue to secure. Trim off any excess paper at the sides of the basket. You can also glue a solid strip at the top of the basket to give it a finished look. If you wish, cut out a handle from construction paper and glue it onto your basket,

You have a couple of options on how to finish this craft. You can glue the entire Basket onto a piece of construction paper, OR you can glue an extra strip of paper on the back to hide the bottom of the eggs and the kids can carry it by the handle.
