Here is a simple craft that would make a cute party favor.
Take a milk jug lid. The style that twists off and is deeper works best.
Using a hole punch, punch two holes in the sides of the lid making sure that the holes are across from each other. An adult may have to punch the hole as the plastic is difficult to punch. Cut a pipe cleaner in half. Lace it through the holes and twist to make a handle.
Rip a piece of green tissue paper. Place it in the bottom of the "basket".
Put some peanut m&m's or other oval shaped candy in the basket.
