Kid’s Drop In Craft – May Baskets

Stop by EHFPL on Saturday, April 29th between 10am-12pm and make a May Basket!

Ever heard of the May baskets? People would leave a paper basket or cone containing spring flowers and sweets on each other’s doorsteps, usually anonymously. This tradition was popular through the 19th and 20th centuries, especially with children or sweethearts. The custom was to knock on the door, yell “May basket!” and then run. If the recipient caught the giver, he or she was entitled to a kiss. 

Come make a May Basket for someone special and join in this fun tradition!
