An easy ex­tra gift idea

Your Home and Garden - - Contents -

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!
