As the Easter season begins to roll around, many parents begin to make plans and party decorations for the holiday. As they continue these plans, a road block that comes in the way are teenagers. Teenagers may think that they are too old to be carrying an Easter basket that is pink or has a rabbit design on it, but fear not, this article will allow you to understand the great decorations that can help your child feel included in the Easter tradition.
The first way that you can design an Easter basket for your teen is to make the basket a color that you know he or she will like. A surefire way to make sure that you get the right color is by knowing what color they’re room is. Knowing their room color is important because teens tend to have their rooms designed after their favorite colors. If you cannot get this step simply go up to the teen and ask what their favorite color is. Once you have their favorite color you can begin to design the basket. Go out to the store and buy things such as construction paper and wallpaper in their color, then continue on and cut out the paper into a size that is proportional to the basket. Make sure that the cutting is neat. No teen wants to walk around with a scrappy cut basket.
Second to making a proper basket for a teen is to get pictures of popular movie characters on the basket. You can easily do this by going on the computer and printing out pictures of movie characters, then continue on to cutting out their bodies and taping them on to the basket. Make sure that you have multiple movie characters so that the basket is covered on each side, because when the teen is holding the basket it would be embarrassing if their friends only saw a construction paper or wallpaper.
The last step for a teens Easter basket is ensuring that they have the proper gifts or candies inside. Ask the teen at least a month or couple weeks before the Easter event happens what kind of candy they like. Then go out and buy the candy and fill the basket with it. Popular candies that any teen might enjoy are Hershey Kisses or Sour Patch Kids. Try your best to include only candies or food because if a teen were to receive a basket with toothpaste or shampoo in it, it will be very embarrassing to them, and probably even ruin their day. Remember to ask the teen what kind of things they would enjoy.
In conclusion, making a properly decorated Easter basket for a teen is not a hard task. As long as you understand what teenagers like and don’t like you can work your way to avoid anything that could potentially aggravate them, and decorate the basket in a cool and appealing fashion.
