Decisions Decisions there is so many wonderful Easter baskets to make and they are all so cute. If you are on a budget or have a lot of kids to make baskets for than this can be very inexpensive that you can even make some for their whole class or have the class make them. Have the parents bring in empty milk jug and you can get tissue paper or paint or even use the googly eyes from Walmart or the dollar store. It will be a joy to see their faces when they create their own milk jug basket. Thanks for the idea.

Very cute with 9 grandkids they can all have fun.I will share this one!

That's what I wondered also. Must be a mistake!
