What qualifies as a make and take? 

Something that is made in your establishment by participants. It can be in the form of a workshop, a class, or just guided making!

Is this a DIY event?

No – it’s important to describe your event / participation as Make & Take. DIY has the connotations of doing something by yourself at home. Make & Take is a guided experience done in your store.  It’s important to adopt the phrase Make & Take in email, social media, and any signage,  so it’s clear your store is participating in the event and it’s clear it’s not a “take it home to make it” activity.

Suggested ideas for participating businesses


  • Items made from scratch at your business
  • Craft projects for kids
