Dinosaur Easter Basket

Updated on March 12, 2017

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!

It's almost Easter and that means it's time for you to start thinking about the Easter basket you have to make ... will you make a dinosaur basket too?

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!

Traditional Easter Basket Or A Unique Easter Basket - Which Basket Idea Do You Like Best

There are so many different ideas you can use to create a unique Easter basket with but not everyone likes them. Some folks like to stick with the traditions that have been in their families for a long time and they would prefer the normal basket filled with jelly beans, Peeps and a chocolate rabbit. 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.

Even More Great Dinosaur Toys For Your Easter Basket

Teach your child, or grandchild, that learning is fun with these interesting dinosaur molds. Some are for the sand...imagine yourself on a beach making some dinosaur sculptures and wonderful memories with your child. Or get the sets that are meant to be made in your house...any fan of the dino will enjoy making these fun kits.

When I was a child we got a stuffed toy every Easter and I remember how much I loved those toys. I find it's better to fill a basket with a toy than put in too much sugar.
