Sharing the Disney Love...Operation Christmas Child

I love to talk Disney and share my love for the Disney magic! Well this Christmas season, our family is Sharing the Disney Love by sending out Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes! We have never done this before and we attended an event at Lifeway Christian Stores and they gave us the boxes and pages for us to send. All you do is fill the box with goodies for a child. Easy! We went to the Dollar Store near us and found all kinds of goodies and some of the things we had extra at our house. 

These are the three boxes our family packed- one to represent each girl in our family. I love the idea of teaching my children to give back and to give to those who have less than we do. We paid online 
#1 to pay for the shipping that it costs to send the box $7 each.  #2 because you get to track your box to see where it's delivered to if you pay online only! and #3 to get our tax deductible form for the cost of shipping. My girls loved filling out the pages for each box that told the box recipient about them and they got to color the page to, which they loved.

 The puzzles, jump rope, art craft and comb/mirror set were from the $1 type store. The coloring book and crayons were left over from a birthday we just recently had. Everything must be new and unused. The Cinderella shirts were from The Children's Place on clearance for 1.99. I was going to have my youngest wear them next spring, but chose to pass them along and hopefully the little girl who receives them will love it!

This box was for a 3t girl. The shirt I got at Target for $2 on clearance and was planning on giving it to my daughter to wear later, but we decided to give each girl a shirt. The cup we had left over from a birthday party, but I thought they can use it to drink out of, or to hold their crayons...

* One thing I would've done differently and might still do - is place the items in a plastic shoe box with a lid. That way they can use the box to carry water or store things for a long time, etc. 
Also - you can choose boy or girl and the age group. We just chose little girls because it was in common for my girls. The links shared above have packing lists and how to drop off and all that good info! 

I would love for you to consider doing this at your home! Share the Love and make a child's day! Teach your kids about blessing others and to be a giver.

November 18-25 is the drop off time frame so make this a weekend project!
