This Easter give more toys and less chocolate 🥚🐇
With Easter just over a week away be sure to get in quick for your last minute gift shopping with us. We love giving toys as an alternative to chocolate at Easter time. I always eat way to much chocolate so it is just better to give less chocolate and something that will last instead. The fun of toys really lasts so much longer and gives kids something fun and new to entertain them over the school holidays (and all our wooden toys don't contain any extra sugar!). Choose express shipping to ensure your order arrives in time.
We have a great new Easter gift and crafting idea for you. See below for the full details!
Do It Yourself - Easter Goodie Basket!!! (or should we say Easter Tin!!?!)
What you need:
- White Tin
- Sharpies Pens
- Tissue Paper
- Make Me Iconic Toys & Sequin Purses
Step One - Grab a blank tin from a craft shop or your local discount store. These tins are usually inexpensive and come in different sizes and shapes. Try to choose a size and shape that will suit the toys and gifts you want to put inside. Cardboard gift boxes also work well as an alternative. It's better to have a tin or box with a white or very light coloured overall backdrop. Cover the tin in a fun colourful design using Sharpies pens.
Step Two - You might need to add some extra padding in the base of the tin to create height for the toys to pop out nicely and for them to also stack nicely in layers. Any sort of tissue paper or wrapping paper will do that will match your theme or colors. Fold and scrunch a good large piece of tissue paper and place it in the bottom of the tin.
Step Three - Now comes the fun part and a little bit of some creative visual merchandising techniques to learn on the spot! Choose toys, sequin purses and small gifts you want to add to your Easter tin. Make a theme with your toys or just go random and fun! It is best to have the larger items at the back and the smaller items at the front. Try to be creative here and make sure every toy gets a little view from all angles. Fill your Easter tin with fun Make Me Iconic toys from our Loose Change range of toys and of course add a chocolate Easter egg or two. You can also sprinkle some paper confetti in the tin too if you like.
