Operation Christmas Child...at Easter?


Last year we participated in Operation Christmas Child for the first time.  Each of the children packed a shoe box for a child somewhere in the world.  We made a lesson out of it...deciding how much money to spend, buying and collecting items to put into the box, packing and dropping off our boxes.  A few months after we shipped off our box, we received an e-mail letting us know that our boxes went to the Democratic Republic of the Congo.  Of course, we had to run to our map to have a little geography lesson.

This year we are trying to think about the shoe boxes that we will pack throughout the year.  Post-Easter sales are great for little toys and trinkets that would make some child very happy!
