A customer thought up this great way to present trading pins to her son’s team. She first checked that no team members had any nut or peanut allergies. After confirming that there were none, she bought a box of old-fashioned Cracker Jacks for each team member. She then carefully opened the bottom of each box, took out the lame prize (sorry Cracker Jacks, but these have gotten silly) and then inserted the trading pins, each in its protective plastic bag. She then resealed the box with a little carefully placed tape.

Surprise: Trading Pins

When the team gathered to watch videos and have hot dogs before the next tournament, each boy got a box of Cracker Jacks and found their trading pins. Can you imagine how surprised they were? More exciting videos resulted.

Of course all members received more pins for trading and gifting later, but what an impact that surprise delivery had!

Cracker Jack Trading Pin Suprise

I love how parents support their teams and are sure to keep the team and sports experience a positive one.

So put on your thinking cap. I’d love to hear what you come up with and I’d love a picture!

Happy Tournament Season!
