100 Theme Basket Ideas

16 years 4 months ago #82369 by msychel
I have been working on our theme basket raffle/art show that we have around Valentine's Day. I started brain storming on ideas for theme baskets to give the room parents who are coordinating baskets for each class. The ideas just kept flowing.

I know this plae has been such a help to me & our PTO so I thought maybe I could help someone.

I am lisitng them here. Some pertain to our location, but you could change them to fit your location.


Be creative in what kind of “basket” to wrap in. A bucket (so many kinds), umbrella baby stroller, trash can, laundry basket, a hat, the ideas are endless.
