Operation Christmas Child – Boy 5 to 9

I have participated in Operation Christmas Child where you pack a shoebox full of useful items, like school supplies, personal care items, shoes/clothing or small age appropriate toys.

For this box I used an adult shoe box and tried to include a mix of useful and fun items, but this one ended up with more of the former than the latter.   I shop all year and try to buy everything on sale to keep prices down.

Items packed:

  • Size 8 outfit with shorts and swimtrunks – $7
  • Size 13 boys shoes (purchased and donated by Marv)
  • 3 pairs of socks – $1
  • 5 pack of Hotwheels – $5
  • Ruler – .25 cents
  • Crayons – .25 cents
  • Safety scissors – .75 cents.
  • 1 bag of pens – $1
  • Lion pencil case – $1
  • Composition book – $1
  • Book light – $1
  • Earth Education activity/coloring book – $1
  • Kids toothpaste – $1
  • Toothbrush – .50 cents
  • Bar of soap (not pictured) – $1
  • Rubber bouncy stress ball (not pictured) – free promotional item

It cost $7 donation per box to ship the boxes.  Collection is November 17-24th or you can mail your box Drop off locations
