Do you have a special basket you use for your little one each year or do you invest in new ones every time? My original plan was to have one basket for all the years… but the basket fell apart at the end of the second year.
My other half says it had something to do with me cramming too much stuff inside. I guess I do get a little too excited about filling an Easter basket. Easter baskets are so fun though! I can’t help it.
This fun template is perfect for creating colorful baskets with your little ones. There are so many great ways to enjoy these baskets. Keep scrolling to get your own Easter basket template for crafting and play.

– ABC & 123 Practice: Letter and number recognition are important skills for preschool learners to master. Use the Eeaster egg template printable I created here to make eggs with alphabet letters or numbers 1-10.
Then, place the eggs in the basket and have your little learner pull out “B” or “5” for a special Easter treat. Alternatively, you could place the eggs around the room and ask children to find the letter “D” or the number “2” and put it in the basket. It’s a fun Easter themed way to practice.
- For toddlers, consider coloring the egg templates in solid primary colors for practice recognizing colors.
- For kindergarten and first grade, write CVC words, sight words, or simple math equations (2+2) on the eggs.
– Creative Writing: This basket template would also be perfect for an Easter themed writing prompt. Have kindergartners draw a picture of what would be inside their perfect Easter basket. Then, on lined paper, have each child write a few sentences about what would be in their basket and why.
- For older children, you could prompt them to write an Easter themed story starting with the words “When I found my basket Easter morning, the Easter Bunny had filled it with…” Focus on using story elements like setting, characters, and resolution. It’s a fun way to practice early writing skills with young learners.
– Wikki Stix Basket: Have you heard about wikki stix yet? My kids think they’re pretty awesome. We learned about them from an OT (Occupational Therapist) friend. OTs use them to build finger muscles and fine motor control. So how can you use wikki stix with this Easter basket template?
Well, wikki stix are basically string covered in wax which makes them manipulative and sort of sticky. They’re great for making shapes and what could be more perfect for decorating a basket! Just give your little learner a box of wikki stix and let them have fun covering their basket in waxy twine for a 3D colorful basket.
