These easy peasy May Day baskets are a great craft for you and the kiddos.

What you’ll need

Bright, plastic cups

For “petals”: Patterned scrapbook or construction paper

Scissors

Permanent marker, pencil or pen for tracing

May Day treats: Candies, small toys, etc.

Optional: Green construction paper for “name” leaf

Directions

1. On scrapbook or construction paper, lay cup top-side down.

2. Trace outline with writing utensil.

3. Hand-sketch petals around outline. Cut around petals.

4. Press scissors in the center of outline. Cut triangle shapes from the center out toward the “rim” of the cup outline. (These triangle shapes help keep petal form secure around cup.) If triangles are too long, trim bottoms.

5. Place cup inside the flower, with triangle cut-outs folding inward and down.

6. Fill with May Day treats.

Optional: Cut leaf shaped name card out of green construction paper. Write the name of May Day basket recipient in permanent marker.
