I ALWAYS seem to forget May Day…until someone brings a cute May Basket to our door. Then the kids get all excited and ask if we can make some. And at that point I feel like it’s too late to start thinking of a plan.
This year…I remembered!!
We started working on our baskets three days early!
We started by tracing this pattern onto yellow cardstock:
The yellow cardstock pattern fits around a paper cup. The boys picked their favorite pictures from this sheet of cut-outs and glued them on.
(You’ll find the downloads to these here!)
These were simple to make….and ALL of the boys had fun with them! I think they turned out ADORABLE!
We’ll be filling the baskets with Tiny Cookie Bites. These cute little cookies are fun to make and yummy to pop into your mouth!
Tiny Cookie Bites
1 stick butter, melted
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 t. sea salt
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. vanilla
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
Mix together melted butter and brown sugar. Stir in egg, salt, baking soda and vanilla. Add flour and mix thoroughly. Place tiny bits of dough on a baking sheet and bake for 7-8 minutes in a 350 degree oven.
Find all the instructions and download the patterns and picture cut-outs in the Clever Creations section of the HeavenlyHomemakers site here. They are free for you to use! Have Fun!!
(As an aside…my boys can’t wait to go ring someone’s doorbell…drop off the May Basket and make a run for it! Ah…the joys of being sneaky!)
