This DIY Candy Easter Basket is fun and different idea to make the Kids. This is so simple to make and we guarantee that your kids will love this much more than a regular Easter basket.

Easter is one of my favorite holidays and I really look forward to it all year. It means Spring and warmer weather is here and it’s a much more relaxed holiday than say, Christmas. This Easter idea was a really fun one to create.
