Need a cute idea

So for our great nephews we got them a years pass to digger land, which is where kids and adults can go use "heavy equipment".

Since most 4 and 5 year olds can't dig a piece of paper we got them each a remote control toy dump truck to go with it. And little yellow construction hats (they love to play dress up)


I wanted to get something to go in the dump truck, 

Actually I wanted to take them both out of the box and put a bow on them and put soething in the back and give it to them like that.

DH says taking it out of the box will seem weird. So I said maybe open the box put something in the back and close it back up.

I dont know.

I know they have those candy rocks, its chocolate but they look like real stones. but a lb is 10 dollars, and not sure how much i would get for that price.

Im already in this gift 256 bucks.

My husbands grand parents take the gifts out of the box.

One year they got these cool piggy banks that look like the dog is eating the coins out of a dog bowl. They put batteries and $100 in it.

Don't fill it with candy. No parent wants that shit dumped on the floor.

Fill with pennies or something.

I wouldn't recommend giving kids food that looks like something that's not food.  You don't want them to mistakenly try to eat real rocks.  

Why dump trucks and not excavators?

I wasn't trying to insult anyone.  Sorry you took it that way.

The others are getting a gift of "digging", but these two have dump trucks and not toy versions of the equipment the older ones will be using.  My kids LOVED to dig when they were those ages.  If they had digging trucks (excavators) I was going to suggest you hide plastic dinosaurs in their yard or sandbox for them to discover.
