Teacher Appreciation: 2 Easy Ways Kids Can Make May Baskets for Their Teachers!

Celebrate the blossoms of spring with an easy paper May basket. Here's how:

  • Curl colored construction paper into a wide cone shape. Staple to secure. 
  • Cut another piece of paper that is about 2 inches wide and 5 inches long. This is the handle to your basket. Staple each end on either side of the open area of the paper cone. 
  • Create a flower bouquet from your garden or from a nature walk. 
  • Wrap the bottom of the stems with a damp paper towel and then cover with foil. Place the flowers into your May basket. 
  • Hang them from a door knob or give them to teachers, friends and relatives!

Another idea that's even easier to make is a construction paper basket (pictured). Here's how:

  • Cut a basket shape out of construction paper.
  • Cut flowers out of felt. Glue them on the paper basket.
  • Glue a bow made of ribbon or felt to the top of the handle.
  • If desired, cut different colored eggs out of construction paper and help your child write things they love about their teacher on each egg. Glue onto the basket.
