Munchkin had a special delivery to make...
|He insisted on holding a box all the way there. And managed not to open it! (photo taken while waiting for seatbelt assistance!)|
Six lovely boxes full of cute, useful, colourful gifts organised by myself and my mum.
|The production line on my dining table last weekend!|
|Finished boxes! I'm always slightly disappointed that it takes so little time to fill them all up!|
There were marbles, and skipping ropes, and plastic animals.
There were tshirts and shorts.
There were toothbrushes, flannels (facecloths), soap and even plastic soap containers.
|Aren't these the CUTEST soft toys??|
Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes are due into local drop off points around New Zealand by Sunday 20th of October.
You've got two and a bit weeks, people! Head on down to your local Dollar Value store and get shopping! Why not go as a family? Turn it into a tradition. We wrap and start packing our boxes every year at Christmas. This year Munchkin helped me deliver them, like last year. Next year I think I'll get him to fill a box himself, take him shopping with real money, get him to choose things, and put them in himself.
What to put in:
What to leave out:
A little something extra that made it's way into our boxes this year:
|Cards given to me, printed image of our family with "love from..." written underneath.|
ps - and in case you're wondering how to fit an exercise book in a narrow shoebox:
|Make sure to hold your tongue in the right position!|
|Get the rubber band on fast!|
|One happy little girl in a few months' time!|
