For this Layout you will only need to design one page. I set up my Layout so that it could be printed horizontally and only used up 1-8 1/2x11" piece of cardstock (per color).
For this Layout I used the Easter Basket Image set at an image size of 6.153 w x 7.556 h from the Create a Critter cartridge , and 10-Eggs set at an image size of 1.639 w x 2.167 h from the Cricut Font & Basic Shapes cartridge.
Step 1: Cut Layer 1, using Cardstock (placed Horizontally). I prefer to use the Light Grip Cutting Mat when I use Cardstock as it is easier to remove from the mat.
Step 2: Repeat this process for each of the colors.
Step 1: Simply Laminate all of your pieces and cut them out.
Directions for Play:
Children take turns matching Eggs to the matching Color Basket.
For alternate play you can assign one basket per child. Using a die and have the children take turns rolling and placing the matching number of eggs in their baskets.
