An easy extra gift idea
When it comes to kids, often it’s the little things they love the most. A holiday gift jar filled with tiny presents will give them hours of fun throughout the summer. Look for a jar with a wide top (we got ours from Kmart) then get collecting. Keep an eye out in the supermarket, $2 shop, toy store and op-shop and build up a treasure trove of intriguing treats. If you have time, wrap up a few items for an extra boost of anticipation.
Filler ideas: bouncy balls, packs of cards, mini board games, pick-up sticks, marbles, parachute men, dice, a Slinky, wrapped sweets, a key ring, socks, stickers, slime, glitter pens, scented felt-tips and fancy pencils, small notebooks or notepads, fun erasers, hair accessories, lip gloss, nail polish, washi or glitter tape and, of course, lollies!
