    Default The Nature Basket

    CRAFT MATERIALS:
    Shallow, handleless basket with a wide mouth
    Clear vinyl saucer
    Potting soil
    Ryegrass seed
    Water
    Undyed hard-boiled eggs
    Bunny cookies
    Animal figurines
    Chocolate eggs
    Brown paper bag
    Scissors
    Rafia

    Time needed: Weekend Project
    1. Fill a clear vinyl saucer with potting soil, sprinkle on a layer of ryegrass seed, cover with a very thin layer of soil, and spritz with water.

    2. Keep in a sunny window and spritz daily. It will take 10 days for the grass to reach a few inches high.

    3. Place the saucer into the basket.

    4. Top the grass with undyed hard-boiled eggs, bunny cookies, animal figurines, and chocolate bunnies.

    5. Create a tag for your basket by cutting out a leaf shape from a brown paper bag.

    6. Tie it on with a raffia bow.

    Variations:
    Other good treats: seed packets, a pocket bird guide, or magnifying glass.
