Washi Tape for Attaching Batteries to a Gift

The dreaded words, batteries not included, were emblazoned on the packaging of a gift we purchased for a young relative. Even though the toy is fun without the lights and music the batteries enable, I think gifts should include everything that is needed. I wanted to include batteries so the parents didn’t have to buy or find something extra to allow their child to play with the gift.

Attaching Batteries to a Gift - another great use for washi tape!
We attached 3 AA batteries to the packaging using bright pink polka dot washi tape. We supervised as the child opened the gift and promptly added the batteries to the secure battery compartment in the toy.

I’m becoming a big fan of washi tape. It’s colorful, fun, and has a ton of uses.
