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.
Summer Fans Craft – Just 100 Yen!
You can decorate your summer fan with any material, such as watercolour or acrylic paint, crayon or marker. If painting, make sure the paint dries entirely before standing the fan upright. Stop into your local 100 yen store today and pick up a fan or two! They are such a great value you don’t have to worry about making artistic mistakes.
Do you love Daiso?
I 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 countries. 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.
