DIY Easter Egg Grass

Does that plastic Easter egg grass drive you crazy? I don't have too much experience with it since my little guy is so little, but I remember my mom not being a huge fan, so I figured I'd make an alternative.

I cut strips of paper about 1/2 an inch wide and then used my paper crimper (I think I've seen them at Hobby Lobby) to crimp the pieces of paper. That's it. Simple.

Here's a few things I've got planned for my little guy's basket. We're keeping it simple this year.
  • The basket is a bucket with a shovel (he loves shovels)
  • Crayons and animal coloring pages
  • Toy bugs
  • Sidewalk chalk (he's a little young but this is something I plan to do with him)
  • Bath toys
  • A book with stories about Jesus.
What are you putting in your little ones' Easter basket? I'd love for you to leave a comment with your ideas. 

I'm having a blast at these lovely linking parties.
