Are you tired of putting your child's Easter goodies in baskets every year?  Do you have piles of old baskets lying around from previous years?  This year, how about doing something different and practical with non-basket Easter baskets!?

OK, OK, so we know that Tuesdays are always craft ideas at Toys In The Dryer and this post isn't exactly a craft.  We feel, however, that you do have to have a bit of a crafty thumb to put these basket ideas together.  Plus, we think it's OK to make exceptions to our rules for holidays.  So, without further ado...

  1. Great ideas!
    One year we used laundry baskets that matched the decor of the kids' rooms. Another year we used decorative garbage cans.

  2. Great ideas, I hate spending all that money on baskets just to discard them.

  3. I made a "basket" for my mom out of the plastic drink dispenser that you put lemonade or tea in... then added Crystal Lite packs and other goodies
