Introducing Cotton Twist

Introducing the sustainable brand Cotton Twist

A warm welcome to another of our wonderful brands here at Eeny Meeny - Cotton Twist! This week we’re sharing all things party favours, crafts and hands-on joy through this fabulous British brand. The enchanting world of Cotton Twist began in 2015, founded by Anne-Clare. Cotton Twist is all about embracing the joy of making memories, whether it’s through making a perfect party bag or engaging in an afternoon of imaginative play. All this combines with the foundation of replacing throw-away plastic crafts and favours with beautiful materials that will be cherished for many years. We’ll share our favourite items from Cotton Twist in this article, peppered with our ideas for making magical memories Eeny Meeny style.

Party bags

It’s all too easy to fill your children’s party bags with inexpensive plastic toys. They are easy to get hold of, budget-friendly and don’t take long to prepare. We think we can do better, though. Instead of plastic items that will be briefly played with - and often thrown away, why not add in some of Cotton Twist’s beautiful craft kits for each child? You might like to just include one craft kit per bag, or a selection of items, and they are sure to be well-loved for a long time! We really rate Cotton Twist’s beautiful bracelet kits for this, with a range of different styles to suit your child, their friends and even the party theme. Perhaps mermaids are popular with your little tribe? Or if fairies are well loved, the fairy bracelet kit will go down a treat too.

If you fancy setting little ones up with a longer activity from their party bags, Cotton Twist have a  fab selection of craft kits outside of jewellery making too. The mermaid peg doll kit is just lovely for making a puppet to keep forever, with a fairy version too. If you’re more in the market for a superhero themed party bag, look no further than the superhero peg doll kit.

Festival crafts

Cotton Twist also have a lovely selection of crafts designed specifically for special festivals. We’ve had great responses to their Easter range, such as this lovely salt dough egg decoration kit which will not only be a fun afternoon spent, but a chance to make a beautiful set of decorations to bring out year on year. Meanwhile this beautiful ‘Make Your Own Easter Garden’ kit will set you up with beautiful Easter hunt items to return to every time the festival comes around.

Whimsical afternoons 

Finally, you need not reserve Cotton Twist’s lovely collection for special occasions. Their larger crafts can be brought out for cosy crafting afternoons and reused again and again. The rainbow and flower bracelet craft kit has enough beads for a lovely set of bracelets, which can be reused to make all sorts of magical variations. The same goes for this daisy wooden bead version. Equally you might like to simply get a selection of the smaller crafts above, set them up for self-selection, and see what your little ones get up to!

We just love well-made, environmentally friendly toys and crafts that don’t cost the earth (or you!). We think Cotton Twist beautifully fits the bill - so next time you’re looking to furnish party bags, a special festival or a cosy afternoon, you know where to go!
