We love putting together the Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes each year and it’s such an easy way to get our little ones involved, from going to the store and buying a few items with their own money to actually putting the items in the box, coloring a picture and praying for their new friend who will receive it. We typically choose a little gal box because it’s easiest to connect with that for my girls. Here are some cute ideas that I’ve found that may be making their way into our box this year (or something similar)! I’ve found the best place to head is to the Dollar Aisle at Target, here at Amazon, or Hobby Lobby!
Are you noticing a theme here? My oldest just loves all things pink and princess right now so our sweet little gal around the world just had to get pink and princess too! We will be adding other items in the box too like flip flops, a shirt, a little notepad to color in, a toothbrush and of course a “masterpiece” that is already in the works!
What have you put in your box this year? Where have you found the best deals? Do you let your little one help you pick out the items? Be sure to check out the Service Idea link for ways to get your little one involved with you as you pack your shoebox! Also check out Samaritan’s Purse for GREAT ideas to fill those boxes and for a list of items that you CAN’T put in the box!
