Let’s Play for Change
From 20 November to 24 December for every children’s book and toy sold during the campaign period, the IKEA Foundation will make a donation of € 1 to projects in some of the poorest communities in the world, supporting children’s development and learning, equal participation, sports and of course – play.
Got an empty box? Decorate it! It’s great storage for the essentials to put on a show for Family Fun Day (no mess!). If you set a fixed weekly time for Family Fun Day, it becomes a tradition that everyone looks forward to and knows what to expect.
Set the scene with a backdrop, spotlights, and a stage. We put the backdrop on a wall, but you can use a door or a curtain rod—wherever works best! Spotlights add a theatre feeling, and you can make a stage with an outline of removable tape or ribbon.
We filled our box with costumes, masks, hats, and props that make it easy to get in character (we certainly did). Whether you buy pieces—like the fun capes and hats in our LATTJO range—or make them, you can keep adding to your collection.
3, 2, 1, fun! An audience of soft toys, pets, and friends are ready for showtime with choice seats and popcorn, too. Excited for your own show but don’t know where to start? We made a list of story ideas to help set the plot.
