Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child is a wonderful way to practice and model giving with your young ones this holiday season!

Grab a shoebox (or preferably a sturdy plastic container), fill it with gifts for a girl or boy, and Samaritan's Purse will ship it overseas to a child in need, along with the good news about Jesus.

Here are a more detailed instructions on how to pack a box. (You can print your own boy/girl/age label here! or pick one up from me at our next MOPS meeting.)

And here are some excellent suggestions on what to put inside your shoebox.

Also very cool, if you pay $7 shipping, you can track which country your box is going to! And for kids who are little older, this coloring page and certificate are perfect:
I'll be collecting shoeboxes at our MOPS meeting on November 15th to bring to our local drop off site. There's lots of great stuff at the Dollar Tree and at Target!

Happy Giving!
