Build a FBook photo album and/ or desktop folder with ready to share infographics, posters, motivational posters, cartoons to mix up your replies.
Emphasise key points. Folk only consider a maximum of 3 at a time, so pensions, childcare, child poverty, casino banking, private health and private policing maybe call for extra attention. And, yeah, I should only have listed 3 of those.
Make stuff on Scottish/ Yes themes. For some that’s sawing out giant wooden Yes signs for others baking Saltire iced cakes and handing them to the Nos. (Painful I know).
Make a list of your 7 Wonders of Scotland, visit some this spring/ summer and show your No neighbours the pics. Preferably in the form of a 2 hour slideshow.

I collected Innocent smoothy alphabet fridge magnets. My fridge currently says Free Scotland in bright colours.
Chalk boards are great for leaving messages around for vistors and for practicing chalk art. Chalk art and other types of flash art like water on a dry wall need to be on your own surfaces. Otherwise, Yes Hopscotch on the ground, flag on the side of the garage, wee cartoon popping out of the drain.
Paper art can be left places without littering. A Yes Scotland pamphlet in a book you’re passing round friends, an origami thistle left on a table, a decorative bookmark handed out with other stuff.
Less is often more. E.g. Glasgow – Faslane’s human shield. And you’re gone.
I went the free route, but for a modest price you can have any fridge magnet you like. Just grab someone with a printer cartridge, point a gun at them and use all their ink while they watch. http://www.craftycomputerpaper.co.uk/.-Magnetic-Paper_073…
Make your own fridge magnets and signs using inkjet magnetic paper.
Keep a wee book of your own Real Life Scary Stories handy. One or two of mine:
Maybe remember the kids and judge who has their best interests in mind not on the basis of what they say, but what they do. http://news.stv.tv/…/262135-anger-as-court-rules…/
