Follow these directions and learn how to make a cone-shaped May Day basket you can hang on a neighbor's door knob.

  • Age Guideline: 5 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 20 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.

Materials Needed:

Cut a triangle shape out of bright colored construction paper. Make the point flat. Roll the triangle into a cone shape and tape the 2 sides together. Trim off any extra paper around the top of the cone to make it even.

Cut a strip of construction paper that is approximately 12-inches long by 2-inches wide. Tape this strip onto the top of your cone to make a handle.

Now you can fill the basket with flowers and/or treats. You can make home-made flowers to fill your basket. The May Day basket pictured here was filled with candy flowers.

Once your May Day cone basket is done, try to hang it on your neighbor's doorknob without getting caught!
