Christmas Shoebox Project Completed!

We finished picking, packing and wrapping our families contribution to Operation Christmas Child this weekend. I have discovered that I am absolute rubbish at wrapping cardboard shoe boxes {how can it be so hard?}.
I thought I would share what we included in our gift box in case you needed some ideas or are still undecided about whether or not you will contribute to this amazing charity.
So, we decided to prep our gift for a young boy around Ethan’s age (7);

INSIDE THE BOX

  • 1 exercise book
  • 1 spelling notebook
  • Coloured pencils
  • Writing pencils and pencil sharpener
  • Cars posters to colour in, markers and stickers
  • Toy car
  • Marbles
  • Funky pen
  • Cuddly alligator
  • Glow stick
  • Lego mini figures
  • Flannel and soap
  • Toothbrush
  • Squishy ball
  • Frisbee

    There is a drop off location just off Lincoln Rd in Henderson so we plan on delivering our Christmas Shoebox on Wednesday!
    How are your families donations coming along?

I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.
