Joy in a Shoebox-- Operation Christmas Child (Boy Edition)

You saw the Operation Christmas Child boxes we packed for girls.  Now you can see what we put in our boxes for the boys!

We did 3 boxes for boys, one for each age group: 2-4yrs old, 5-9yrs old, and 10-14yrs old.

Here is the box for the 2-4 yr old:

The jump rope was a last minute addition...found for 9cents at a CVS clearance!

Just like with our girl boxes, I tried to make sure each child's box has something soft and cuddly in it along with school supplies and soap (double bagged) and toys.  The older boy got a toy skateboard, same kind my own son likes to play with, and the skateboard pencils...same kind we bought our older son for school this year.  I also packed a baggie of Legos for him.

I can't wait to track our boxes this year with Operation Christmas Child and find out what countries they go to!

Do you have any creative things that you put in your boxes for the boys?  Tell me about it in the comments, we want to do more BOY boxes next year!

  1. I love the water bottles with the wash cloth inside. I always do plastic cups with wash cloths that I get after holidays at Walmart.

  2. Great boxes Tammy. I was thinking of adding Yo-Yos to the boxes for church this year.

    1. Yeah I couldn't believe that jump rope was 9 cents! Sometimes you can find great markdowns at CVS. I'm always on the lookout. Thanks for stopping by. :)
