Operation Christmas Child #OCCGiving

Operation Christmas Child #OCCGiving

As the Christmas toy ads start appearing in the mail, my kids’ wish lists grow longer and longer. Sometimes with things they didn’t even know existed until that very moment or with things I suspect would only get played with once. Sound familiar?

It is such a special and exciting time of year for so many reasons and it is also the perfect time to try to teach the kids about giving, compassion, and kindness.

This year I thought that it would be a great experience to pack a shoe box for Operation Christmas Child.  We decided we would shop for a girl, age 5-9, and set out to the stores with ideas (ideas are given on the site which makes it so easy).

While we shopped for the items and brought them home to pack up in the container, there were so many opportunities to talk about why we were sending this box. It was awesome!

Before we drop off the box in November, we will sit down and write a letter or draw a picture to include with it. I’m looking forward to the experience of dropping the box off together.
