colored kleenex baskets

They sound odd, but they turn out lovely, and require so little. I ask parents to donate the colored pink and blue kleenexes. You need about 8 boxes for your class. I then blow up large balloons. The students then "paper mache" the kleenex onto the balloons using an equal mixture of glue to water. You have to be sure to keep the kleenexes open flat as you plaster them to the balloons, and it has to be about three kleexes thick. We leave about 3-4 in. at the top of the balloon open. The balloons must dry 3-4 days, then pop balloons, and you have lovely large "eggs" to put their treats in.

P.S. Okay, I just reread your original post, and these baskets don't have handles. They may not be appropriate for gathering eggs; they're more delicate than that, sorry.
