Make Your Own Paper Easter Basket

March 25, 2021

Hippity hoppity, the Easter Bunny is coming to town! Little ones are always excited about this special day. Many families have the tradition of hiding Easter baskets usually full of special treats left behind from the bunny. Favorites are chocolate and jelly beans, of course.

Where did this long-eared, short-tailed bunny and his tradition begin? According to, in the 1700s German immigrants brought this tradition to Pennsylvania with them. It started with colored eggs; over the years, the practice spread and, of course, expanded into elaborate baskets and leaving out carrots for the bunny to energize him.
