As my children have gotten older, I begrudge spending money on an Easter basket. Who wants to hold onto it all year – or worse – carry the guilt of throwing it away the day after it’s given. Yes, it’s festive; no, it has nothing to do with the Resurrection. Still, it’s fun and purely tradition to give my kids a little gift.

I usually just place a present in a basic gift bag, but if you’re looking for something festive as well as inexpensive, consider making this DIY Upcycled Grocery Bag Easter Basket! I’ve included the links for a traditional Easter basket and one for a smaller fruit basket. All that is needed is a paper grocery bag, ruler, pencil, scissors, a hot glue gun, and a little time!
