A Dinosaur Easter Basket Is A Unique Gift Idea

I am making a dinosaur Easter basket for my grandson and I know he is going to be thrilled with it. I plan to put lots of dinosaur themed candy, toys and gifts in it. I figured that there are many kids out there who, like my grandson, love dinosaurs and thought I would put out a list of what dinosaur toys and candies I put into my basket. You will also find out how to make your own homemade basket and where I got all the supplies to make this Easter gift a dream come true for my sweet, loving boy!

A Dinosaur Easter Basket Holds More Than Candy

I like to make gift baskets that are chock full of goodies and treats. I love to fill the baskets up with candy, but I also add some toys to the mix. Why? Because it's fun to make the biggest, fullest, bestest ever Easter basket for my grandson, that's why! He is always thrilled with the goodies I put in. He can eat some candy and then he can play the rest of the day away with the many dino themed toys I added to his special Easter basket. I think I have more fun finding goodies and filling his basket than he does opening it!

And there's nothing wrong with either of these ideas...different strokes for different folks! Variety and our differences are what makes the world, and the people in it, so interesting. Think it over and give us your opinion about Easter baskets.
