This weekend we finally pack our shoebox for Operation Christmas Child. We decided to pack a box for a boy between the ages of 2-4.
Lil’man had a lot of fun going shopping and picking out things he thought the little boy would like to get for Christmas. It’s amazing how much you can actually fit in a shoebox.
We picked out several toys we thought he might like, as well as some necessities we thought he might need.
|Here’s the items that were included: notebook, coloring book, markers, paddle ball, yo-yo, play-dough and play-dough tools, crayons and Cars stickers. Plus Lil’man went through all his Halloween stash and picked out all the hard candy to send.
The necessities that we included were: a toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, wash cloth, socks and a cookie monster bandana just for fun.
One of my favorite parts this year was the coloring page OCC provided. Lil’man loved coloring in the pictures and answering the questions.
We are going to be following our box to see where it ends up.
Don’t miss out on blessing a child this holiday season.
