I have been saving and washing jars of all shapes and sizes. I have found a great variety of old fashioned sweeties in Aldi. I plan to buy a wooden shoe rack from argos to make some shelves.

I can make and laminate a sign.

Any other suggestions to make it fun?

scales to weigh the sweets out? And little paper bags?

Little scoops? Would the ones you get with formula tins be too small? Or the ones you get in Vanish tubs?

Little stripy paper bags would be great if you can find them.

Scles - yes def, that would be great.

paper bags are a good idea, but cant think of where to get them on high street - postage woudl be silly onnline I think

Am watching and am going to steal your great idea!!!

Scoops - fab.

I cant think of anyone formula feeding (right on emoticon)

Measuring spoons from pound shop maybe?

I could make little fabric bags - so reusable. Would that be crap?

I made one once with an old spice rack and washed out spice jars.
