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.
‘We’ve seen so many ingenious – and often simple – ideas that kids love, in homes of all shapes and sizes,’ says Clare Simmons, IKEA FAMILY Magazine’s digital editor. ‘One of our favourites is a mini table that’s light enough to move from room to room, so that children can share the same space as you while they draw or make things. In the UK, Fred is inspired by his dad’s work as an illustrator, so he loves having his very own FLISAT table for arts and crafts.’

Make space for creativity
Encourage children to express their creativity with a craft station at home. In Portugal, Teresa filled a trolley with art materials for her kids to wheel from room to room. When their masterpieces are complete, help children display their work in a mini gallery – clipping them up makes it really easy to swap in new pictures as they are created.
We love to see our customers get creative with our products. Go for it! But please note that altering or modifying IKEA products so they can no longer be re-sold or used for their original purpose, means the IKEA commercial guarantees and your right to return the products will be lost.
