Activity Gifts to Educate & Entertain All
With their unique brand of activity gifts and personalised presents Clara and Macy aims to add a little bit of magic to everyday family life.
The brainchild of illustrator, designer and maker Laura Clempson, Clara and Macy is home to a unique collection of gifts from paper dolls to craft kits; as well as a number of greeting cards, gift wrap, art prints and more. While there is plenty to be seen in the collection (more than can fit in a single post), today we’re focusing on Clara and Macy’s activity gifts; a stand-out collection of imaginative ideas, beautifully presented.
So without further ado let’s take a look at 3 ranges of activity gifts kids and parents will adore.
Activity Gifts for Kids – Personalised Token Jars
Clara and Macy’s Personalised Activity Token Jars are the perfect way to banish boredom. Whether it’s a rainy day or the end of a long summer holiday, the jars contain a heap of ideas to keep kids occupied and entertained. Each jar holds 15 gorgeous wooden tokens labelled with a creative activity or game idea. Each activity or game suggestion is designed to take only a few minutes of time, making them ideal for when families need to fill small pockets of time.
The activities are suitable for ages 3 – 10 and include things like: build a cardboard box fort; use string to make a laser maze; make a superhero outfit out of paper; set up an indoor obstacle course. The jars can be personalised with names, making them a special gift that will bring hours of joy.
Make Your Own Sewing Kits
Clara and Macy have a wonderful selection of ‘Make Your Own’ Sewing Kits perfect for little crafters; a fun creative gift for anyone interested in sewing or learning a new skill. With these kits children can make their own toys, keyrings, puppets, and more.
An ideal project for kids and parents to make together over weekends and holidays, these activity gifts will keep kids amused, teach them to sew and give them a cool toy or keyring when complete. The sewing kits contain components ethically sourced in Britain, using recycled supplies where possible. Each kit comes beautifully packaged in a 100% recycled Kraft box, making it an ideal item to gift.
Paper Doll Postcards
These oversized paper doll postcards offer hours of simple, creative ‘dress-up’ fun. Beautifully printed on 350gsm silk matte card stock from Laura’s original watercolour and collage illustrations, each card is approximately 21 x 15cm. Just like the paper dolls that seemed to be everywhere in the 80’s, simply cut out the dolls and their outfits, fold over the tabs and your characters are all dressed up and ready to play. Big and little kids can have hours of fun on a cosy afternoon with nothing more than a Clara and Macy dress up doll and a pair of scissors.
About Clara and Macy
The world of twin sisters Clara and Macy is the creation of designer Laura Clempson. Created during a lunch break when she worked as a puppet maker, Laura’s characters burst with charm. Clara is a cheeky little bossy pants who loves cake; Macy a quiet bookworm who wouldn’t dream of ever bossing anyone around and last but not least is Colin, the boy next door who loves to collect snails.
In the middle of the night (whilst her 3 children sleep) Laura crafts a wonderful variety of activity gifts and unique presents. The collection contains paper dolls, stationery and toys; often featuring her trio of charming characters.
With plans to expand the Clara and Macy world to books, animations, giftware and more, there’s a bright future ahead for Laura and the gang.
