How to fill a shoebox for Operation Christmas Child
do you fill shoeboxes?
if you have never filled a shoebox we would love for you to join our family this year!
i am going to do a series of posts that show how and why we fill our shoeboxes.
but hear this: they need to be ready for your local drop off NOVEMBER 14-21!
for all the information right from the organization checkout and save the following website:
we are filling five shoeboxes with toys, candy and toiletries to be sent to children around the world.
this has been such a great way to prepare our hearts as we head into the season of Christmas.
to fill a shoebox you need:
1. a standard size shoebox or small plastic container similar in size
2. decide if you want to fill a shoebox for a boy or a girl
3. choose an age range 2-4, 5-9 or 10-14
go out with your children and start choosing small items that fit the criteria.
some of the items we’ve purchased so far:
individually wrapped hard candy
pad of paper
some items we have yet to purchase:
small cars and trucks
we’re just getting started so there is plenty of time! will you join us??
“go, fill a shoebox!”
