Summer Fans Craft – 100 Yen

Looking for a quick fun craft to keep your tribe busy and cool this summer? Try a summer fans craft. I bought a few paper fans at the local Daiso 100 yen store and had fun with the kids. A quick and cheap craft which will also be very useful over the next few months. I checked in three different 100 yen stores (not all Daiso), and all of the stores are selling plain fans now, both foldable and pallet style.

Do you love Daiso?

IMG_0234I love Daiso. Daiso is famous for their 100 yen and low prices stores. About 90% of the products are 100 yen. Products that are not 100 yen are marked very clearly.  They have over 700 stores now in 25 IMG_0255countries. My three favourites to visit are in Ebisu, Gotanada TOC building B1 and Shibuya near TokyuHands. Daiso is a general merchandiser but has a good selection of craft items such as paper, paints, markers, styrofoam, etc. If you are doing crafts with your kids, this is a great and inexpensive option. You can also buy a lot of home items such as storage containers and school notebooks and binders. If you need some cute but inexpensive Japan gifts to take overseas Daiso is also a great option. I have been to the store in Ebisu, Harajuku and Shinjuku and have always found a great selection.
