Make your own piggy bank and money box
Even though we don't deal with cash as much as we used to, there is something magical about a piggy bank or money box. It's special to hear the coins rattle around inside and know that it is your savings money that you can hear.
A money box is even more fun if you have made it yourself. Then you can design your own “home bank” and make it look just the way you want it. If you don't have the courage to build your own money box from scratch, don't be discouraged. At Creativ Company, we have a large selection of money boxes, piggy banks, and animal banks in different shapes, sizes and materials. One thing they all have in common is that they are just waiting for you to decorate them, so that they become pretty and fun to display.

If you have no coins to put in a piggy bank, don't despair. It is also possible to display a money box without anything inside it. Then it’s just a pretty little decorative item that you can display. If you’ve decorated it yourself, or received it from someone who wanted you to feel good, then there may even be a lot of good memories linked to it. And suddenly it’s much more than just a money box.
Children are usually happy to receive a money box. Then they can collect their pocket money in it, and feel how it gets heavier and heavier. And children also find it fun and cosy to decorate their own money box or animal bank. Then it suddenly means something very special.

Remember that if you give a wallet or a money box as a gift, it is good practice to insert a coin. It doesn't have to be a big coin, just a small one.

When it comes to decorating your money box or piggy bank, only your imagination limits what you can decorate it with. Finally, remember to take into account which material your piggy bank is made of.

It would be so sad to destroy a project before you’ve really even started.
